CHITRAL: Participants of a meeting here discussed steps for the removal of encroachments along river Chitral.
The meeting was held with Additional Deputy Commissioner and Settlement Officer Muhammad Irfanuddin in the chair and officials from different departments concerned in attendance.
The meeting was informed that Peshawar High Court had already directed removal of encroachments along river in order to avoid blockade of its courses and avoid flooding.
The meeting decided that the Settlement Department would carry out a survey to pinpoint encroachments made along the river and issue notices to the encroachers.
After serving notices, if the encroachments were not removed voluntarily, the Irrigation Department would launch operations to clear the areas.
