Assam: Anti-Encroachment Drive Conducted in Bura Chapori Wildlife Sanctuary

Guwahati: The district administration has launched a campaign to clear the Bura Chapori Wildlife Sanctuary of unpermitted encroachments in Nagaon and Sonitpur in Assam.

The drive which began on Tuesday morning amidst a significant deployment of security personnel will last until Thursday.

According to officials, a large anti-encroachment campaign is being carried out to clear almost 1,892 hectares of land from unauthorised habitation.

The district administration has put in place a lot of security to prevent any untoward incidents during the eviction campaign.

Today’s eviction resulted in the removal of two villages. For the eviction effort, about 50 excavators and 30 tractors have been stationed in the Char-Chapori districts close to the wildlife sanctuary.

The district administration of Sonitpur and Nagaon claims that encroachers in the area have illegally occupied substantial portions of public land and that notices to evacuate have already been given to the occupants.
