Karachi Metropolitan Corporation and other concerned departments resumed demolition of soft encroachments in the area of Mehmoodabad in Karachi today.
According to the details, municipal officials continued an anti-encroachment drive along the Mehmoodabad nullah. Sources said that concrete encroachments would also be removed including partial demolition of 57 houses built at the encroached land after Thursday this week.
The municipal officials on Monday (yesterday) removed structures on about a 7.5-kilometer area in the anti-encroachment drive along Mehmoodabad nullah.
The extended and encroached areas and walls of houses and shops were either cleared away or demolished in the anti-encroachment drive.
The operation is said to be continued for four days straight in collaboration with KMC and other relevant city agencies.
It may be recalled that Chief Minister (CM) Sindh Murad Ali Shah chaired a Karachi Coordination Committee session to contemplate development projects and drainage infrastructure of the metropolis.
The session pondered over various nullahs across Karachi wherein the CM said they have asked NED University to study and survey all the important lines for remodeling.
