Additional District Magistrate cum Chief Estate Officer Talo Potom on Monday carried out eviction at area around Tomo Riba Institute of Health and Medical Science (TRIHMS) compound where medical college is coming up.
The eviction was also executed at Naharlagun Transport office which state government has now allotted the land for the upcoming Medical College.
Potom said that the director of TRIHMS had earlier complained about the encroachment and illegal settlement under the allotted land for medical college. The DC could not take action to it so I got the list of the people settled and gave them the notice on eviction.
“All the encroachments have been evicted from the allotted area while only a single structure under the transport office was occupied. So far the house has been dismantled, he added.” This eviction was needed for the early construction of TRIHMS medical college.
Speaking on illegal encroachment of government building, Potom told that there are many cases pending in the court and few has been disposed. A committee was formed in the year 2014 where it was ordered not to take action on government quarter encroachment.
But he added that if any illegal encroachment is found and is being complained the department will enact at the earliest in a legal approach.
