Kunzar-Chanpora protests illegal road construction

BARAMULLA: The residents of Kunzar-Chanpora here Saturday protested against the authorities’ alleged failure in preventing illegal construction of a road.
The protesters alleged that the local administration has failed to act against “some miscreants from the neighboring Bongam village” who have been trying to construct a road through their fields against the court directions.
“The High Court has stayed construction of the road, and we have communicated the same to the administration including the Deputy Commissioner and Tehsildar Kwarhama. Yet, violation continues almost every night as the administration has badly failed in implementing the court directions,” Gulam Hasan a local said.
“The police recently conducted a raid to arrest the miscreants. But they escaped and police was only able to seize their tipper and a tractor,” they added. “We demand action against the miscreants.”
