Ganderbal: The residents and traders of Kangan here staged a demonstration against the district administration and the border roads organization (BRO) for their alleged failure to remove illegal encroachment in the area, witnesses said today.

The protesters were raising slogans against the district administration and the BRO authorities for not taking steps to action to evict the Beacon land at Main Market, which has been occupied by some people.


The protesters also blocked Srinagar-Leh highway passing through Main Market Kangan for several hours leaving scores of vehicles stranded.
