Saoner Correspondent,

A total of 124 houses were razed during an anti-encroachment drive at Saoner on Saturday. The families had encroached upon the land of Forest Department and Gram Panchayat on Patansaongi-Dhapewada road three decades ago.

The residents got power connections in the year 2002. SDPO Vikram Kadam, Tehsildar Raj Ranbir and PI Yogesh Pardhi arrived at the spot in the morning hours with police bandobast of more than 200 policemen. The residents raised slogans against administration during the drive. Gram Panchayat and Forest Department had served notices to the residents last week before razing houses.
