Compound wall of CM Ibrahim's building razed

A compound wall of an institution belonging to former Union minister C M Ibrahim at Nagawara and a house at Myadarahalli in Shettihalli ward which were encroaching on stormwater drains were razed on Tuesday.

After a gap of almost a month, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) resumed the stormwater drain encroachment removal drive at three locations in the city, mainly targeting vacant sites situated on the now disappeared drains.

The drive commenced in areas under BBMP's East zone, Dasarahalli and Yelahanka.

“We removed the compound wall of the institution belonging to C M Ibrahim. There was an encroachment along a length of 150 metres and width of four metres on the stormwater drain, which was cleared,” said BBMP chief engineer Siddegowda. The value of the encroached land is worth Rs 6 crore, he said.

At Dasarahalli zone, a building was razed in Myadarahalli village under Shettihalli ward. The family was served a notice to vacate the place for demolition after which major portion of the building was bulldozed.

At Srinivasapura and Harohalli under Yelahanka zone, 22 vacant sites were recovered and trenches were dug. There is an encroachment of a 700-metre-long stormwater drain in these two places.
