SRINAGAR — The authorities demolished an outer wall of a former bureaucrat’s house near the Srinagar Airport on Saturday, officials said.
An unnamed official quoted by the Srinagar-based news agency KDC said that a team of the Revenue Department led a demolition drive to reclaim state land of about 10 marlas from the “encroacher”.
He said that the outer wall, the main gate of the former bureaucrat Farooq Renzu Shah’s residence, was demolished in the Friends Enclave, near the airport, as part of the government’s demolition drive against the “land grabbers”.
Officials said that Renzu Shah’s Humhama home was allegedly in his wife’s name identified as Anjum Sultan, daughter of Mohammad Sultan Wadroo.
Farooq Renzu Shah is a former DC Budgam, Director Department of Information, and is presently the Chairman Jamaat-e-Aitqaad International.
Pertinently, the authorities have reiterated that the main target of the drive was to bring down “high-profile land grabbers”.
