Eviction drive carried out near Raj Bhawan in Guwahati
GUWAHATI: An eviction drive was carried out on Saturday to clear encroachers near the Raj Bhawan in Guwahati by the Kamrup (Metro) district administration.
The people whose houses were demolished had been living at the location near the erstwhile Belle Vue Hotel for the past several years.
The local people said, "The eviction happened without any prior notice and the officials who came for the drive misbehaved with the women when we tried to speak to them. The officials suddenly came and started breaking the houses without even listening to us about our problems." About 15 families were residing in that area where the eviction took place.
