Tiruchi Corporation authorities on Monday removed the encroachments on the rain water drainage channel at Seshapuram in Tennur as the encroachers did not heed to the warning notices issued by the Corporation to remove the encroachments.

An official of the Corporation told The Hindu that two petty shops and a semi-permanent house were built on the rain water drainage channel on the Ramaraya Agraharam in Seshapuram obstructing free flow of water and causing unhygienic condition in the area. R.Chandran, executive engineer (west) of the Corporation, supervised.
