Alwar: In Rajasthan’s Alwar district, where a 300-year-old Shiva temple was bulldozed last week, another 86 shops and homes were demolished as part of the anti-encroachment drive. The affected residents, whose properties were demolished in Rajgarh, formed a Sangharsh Committee for redressal of their grievances.
According to the Sangharsh Committee members, the victims, whose houses were damaged should be compensated while the temple should be reconstructed.
The Committee also demanded the concerned officials be punished accordingly.
Following the demolition drive, the Alwar district administration has issued the incident-wise and factual report of illegal encroachment removed in the Rajgarh Municipality area on April 17, 2022, saying that no religious discrimination has been done in removing encroachment, said a press release.
During the removal of encroachments on April 17, 2022, and April 18, 2022, no valid construction of any person was demolished, stated the Alwar district administration earlier.
