Illegal portions of 17 other properties were demolished
NEW DELHI: The Municipal Corporation of Delhi's drive against unauthorised constructions in East Delhi continued for the third day on Friday with 20 buildings being sealed and illegal portions of 17 other properties being demolished.
The MCD sealed unauthorised properties in Jawahar Park, Vishwakarma Park and J-Extension of Laxmi Nagar and demolished ongoing constructions in Geeta Colony, Gandhi Nagar, Preet Vihar and Laxmi Nagar falling under Shahdara (South) Zone. The civic body had sealed 14 illegal properties and demolished 18 properties in the zone on Thursday, while targeting 19 buildings for sealing and demolition on Wednesday.
The MCD has renewed its focus on curbing unauthorised constructions after a multi-storey building with two illegal floors collapsed in Lalita Park in Laxmi Nagar on November 15 claiming 70 lives. The civic body's sealing and demolition drive in Lalita Park earlier this week was met with protests by property owners.
