Malik Market in Jammu Undergoes Controversial Anti-Encroachment Drive with Heavy Security Measures

Jammu, February 11th, 2023 – A major anti-encroachment drive was launched today in the Malik market area of Jammu, amid tight security measures. The authorities have brought in three JCBs to demolish a car showroom located in the market. The operation is being conducted under close surveillance, with the traffic movement being diverted to prevent any untoward incidents.

Last week, the authorities had started a similar drive, which was met with resistance from the local residents. Some of the protesters even pelted stones at the police personnel, leading to the detention of seven people.
