GUWAHATI, March 31 � Following directions from Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, the Kamrup Metro district administration today carried out a major eviction drive around the Deepor Beel and the Pamohi river.

The drive, which is expected to continue during the coming days, has been launched with a view to allowing smooth flow of flood water from the city to the two major water-bodies, officials said.

During today�s drive a six-foot-high wall constructed by a school was demolished. It is noteworthy that the Azara Circle Officer had recently filed an FIR at Gorchuk Police Station against the concerned school for encroaching on government land and undertaking construction work on it. ���

Evictions were also carried out at five elephant corridors used by pachyderms to reach Deepor Beel for drinking water. Around 20 other permanent constructions, including shops, were also demolished.

The drive was led by Rajib Prakash Barua, Additional DC of Kamrup Metro. Officials from Guwahati and Azara Circle offices, forest and police departments also took part in it.

The latest drive comes days after the district administration issued prohibition on construction and land filling activity in the vicinity of Deepor Beel. The district administration also ordered the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) to shift its garbage disposal site from Paschim Boragaon within three months to maintain the ecological balance of the water body.
