Nagpur: The Enforcement Squad of Nagpur Municipal Corporation on Wednesday morning carried out anti-encroachment operation at East Gate of Railway Station and seized truck loads of material.
The anti-encroachment drive, led by Ward Officer Ashok Patil, cracked down on roadside shops and removed several temporary constructions that were affecting the smooth flow of vehicular traffic.
According to Patil, those encroachers who were removing their stuff on their own were given chance to do it. And the remaining encroachments were removed by the NMC department.
