Karachi (HRNW) The anti-encroachment department of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) resumed its drive Friday, targeting multiple areas in the Central and South districts of the city.

Illegal structures and carts were removed at Gulbahar Peetal Gali, Saddar, and Clifton. The operation was led by Bashir Siddiqui, head of the anti-encroachment department.

Paan cabins, tea stalls, poultry selling shops, pushcarts, and puncture kiosks were razed from footpaths and service lanes in both drives. KMC officials seized various items from these areas too. Local police personnel was stationed at the sites too.

Siddiqui said that the anti-encroachment drive had been continuing for the past three years in all districts of Karachi. The operation began on the directives of the Supreme Court. So far, at least 5000 illegal structures set up over or near stormwater drains in old city areas have been demolished.
