Assam: Anti-Encroachment Drive In Nagaon; Heavy Security Deployed

Guwahati: A large security force has been stationed in Assam’s Sonitpur and Nagaon districts before the start of an eviction effort to free 1900 hectares of land from unlawful encroachment in the Char-Chapori area under Burhachapori wildlife sanctuary.

Over 2000 security forces including paramilitary, home guards, CRPF and Assam police, have been deployed in the region in an effort to prevent any untoward incidents during the drive.

According to reports, the anti-encroachment campaign would commence today and last through Thursday.

50 excavators and 30 tractors have been stationed in the Char-Chapori areas close to the Burhachapori wildlife sanctuary for the eviction drive.

The district administrations of Sonitpur and Nagaon claim that several public lands in the vicinity have been unlawfully occupied by encroachers, and that the administrations have already given them notifications to leave the areas one month ago.

The majority of the approximately 11000 people who were living on the encroached land unlawfully have already fled after the eviction notice was issued a month ago.

More than 2500 homes, mosques, and unauthorised schools have been built on more than 190 hectares of property close to the Burhachapori nature sanctuary.
