Cuttack: The fourth phase of eviction drive to make the adjacent areas of the premier health institute free from illegal encroachments has begun today.
A joint squad of Cuttack district administration, Cuttack Municipal Corporation and the Comissionerate police has started the eviction drive.
According to reports, the joint squad has started demolishing illegal structures from along roadsides from Chunabhati to Ranihat. Shops, showrooms and temples are being demolished now.
