One of the largest anti encroachment operation in the history of Karachi, Over 1000 shops razed
According to the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation, more than 1000 shops have been razed in Saddar during the ongoing drive against encroachments.
The KMC official said that there were parks around 50 years ago outside Empress Market where shops had been built. “Now the administration will restore the place in its original shape,” he added.
He informed that parks would be constructed at all the places in Saddar where shops were demolished. He also said encroachments inside the Empress Market would also be removed. “We will also constitute a task force to prevent encroachments from springing up again in future.”
