Encroachment mafia occupy road outside Aabpara’s Sasta Bazaar


People are facing intense problems due to illicit encroachment mafia that keeps occupying the road just outside the CDA’s Sunday Sasta Bazar.

The Mafia occupies Parking area and controls the Main Road causing a lot of inconvenience to people coming for their weekly shopping. At the same time the one way traffic is another nuisance for the commuters who have to move to other roads.

The encroachers occupy the whole road from Lal Masjid to the Aabpara Taxi stand and all sorts of stalls are established on this road. CDA staff that is deployed to keep a watch on sale of items at the fixed rates and avoid any untoward incident appears to be failing against the encroachers as no action is taken against them.

Some of the Stall holders, in the weekly bazaar, who refused to be identified, said that the CDA staff was getting weekly money from these encroachers in return for allowing them to do their roaring business.

They said even senior officers of CDA who mostly come with their families for shopping are fully aware of the encroachers but they do not take any action which affects the business of the stalls inside the bazaar.
