Check-dam in MLA’s park to be demolished

District Collector Amit Meena on Monday served an order to demolish a check-dam found to have been constructed illegally by P.V. Anvar, MLA, at Kakkadampoyil.

Although the land in which the check-dam was built does not belong to Mr. Anvar, an amusement park he runs at Kakkadampoyil was the beneficiary of the check-dam.

Although the order for demolition of the illegal construction was issued on Friday, it was served on Monday afternoon.

The demolition order was issued after the check-dam was found to have been constructed in violation of the Irrigation Act.

The Collector has given two weeks for the owner of the land to raze the construction.

He asked the executive engineer of the Irrigation Department to execute the order if the owner does not demolish it in two weeks.

The Collector’s action followed a report submitted by the Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO), Perinthalmanna.
