Islamabad (Staff Report): Anti-encroachment drive resumed in the federal capital on Sunday.

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) had launched drive against illegally constructed wedding halls and other setups near Kashmir highway.

State Minister for Affairs Shehryar Afridi visited one of the sites where the drive was under way — G-12 near Kashmir highway — and said the structures constructed with official approval will be bulldozed.

Similar drives are also expected to take place in Lahore and Karachi as well in the coming days.

The Lahore Development Authority has prepared a list of properties where the operation will take place.

Last week, Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar announced an anti-encroachment operation against land mafia and illegal encroachments across the province.
