Assam: 450 Hectares Of Land Freed From Encroachers, says Lakhimpur SP B.M. Rajkhowa

Guwahati: Lakhimpur SP B.M. Rajkhowa stated that approximately 450 hectares of land would be released from the encroachers after the authorities in Assam’s Lakhimpur on Tuesday started a large eviction effort to clear around 500 hectares of forest land.

The Superintendent of Police of Lakhimpur district B.M. Rajkhowa said that the eviction drive is underway and going on peacefully.

“We will free around 450 hectares of land from the encroachers. Originally there were around 500 families, but after issuing notices from the administration nearly 300 families have left the area. And many families have left the area this morning also. We have deployed security personnel, but there is no report of any untoward situation,” Lakhimpu SP B.M. Rajkhowa said.

Excavators and tractors are reportedly being used for the operation by the district government who has deployed heavy security in the region.

Many of the families who had encroached on the forest grounds have since torn down their homes and moved away.
