Bhubaneswar, 15July (LocalWire): Authorities here carried out an eviction drive to remove encroachers and create space for vehicular and pedestrian movement.
Illegal structures were razed to the ground and squatters removed during the drive at Saheed Nagar, City Bus Terminal near Master Canteen Chowk.
The drive was jointly carried out by the enforcement team of BDA, CRUT and Commissionerate of Police, said officials.
With the encroached area being cleaned, wider passage has been created for pedestrians and also for traffic, officials said.
The ongoing eviction drive will be intensified further to other encroached areas in the coming days.
