Ludhiana: Officials from the building branch of the Municipal Corporation (MC) have recommended FIR against the owners of the College Road bookshop for allegedly disrupting the civic body demolition campaign. Officials also alleged that when the crew left for the demolition, not only were they arrested, but demolition tools were also snatched from them. The owner also allegedly acted badly with officials. Senior Town Planner SS Bindra wrote a letter to the Commissioner of Police to have an FIR registered.
Bindra said illegal building work was taking place at the College Road bookshop. MC officials had this work stopped a few days ago, but the owner resumed the illegal work. Building staff had been there to demolish the structure on February 28. The owners of this bookstore behaved badly with the staff and kept the drills in their possession. They reportedly locked the staff in and threatened to kill them. In the letter, the STP recommended FIR against two individuals Tajinder Singh and Gurmannat Singh.
Meanwhile, officials said while MC staff were preoccupied with election responsibilities, illegal construction increased. The role of construction branch officials has also come under scrutiny for their inaction against illegal construction going on in the city on a large scale.
