Indian Air Force officials have expressed satisfaction over measures taken by the district administration to prevent illegal construction within the restricted area of 900 metres of the IAF ammunition depot, in a meeting with deputy commissioner T L Satyaprakash on Friday.

“Our teams are keeping a check on any kind of illegal construction in the restricted area. The district administration is also looking into complaints of unauthorized constructions in the area. Any illegal structure will be razed off as soon as it is reported and strict action, including lodging of an FIR, will be taken against violators,” said Satyaprakash in the meeting.

On the role of police, deputy commissioner Sangeeta Kalia, who was present in the meeting, assured the IAf officials that prompt action would be taken “if any illegal activity in the restricted zone is reported to the police”.

In a recent meeting with the principal secretary to Haryana chief minister, Satyaprakash and MCG chief commissioner Vikas Gupta informed him that the expert committee, constituted by the Punjab and Haryana high court, had suggested that the restricted area should be kept only up to 300 metres.
The district administration has to prepare a report and submitted it to the high court on February 9.
