LAHORE: Deputy Commissioner (DC) Rafia Haider has extended the ultimatum for the encroachment mafia by 24 hours.
In alignment with the directives of the Punjab Caretaker Chief Minister, a grand operation against encroachers is now scheduled to commence on Wednesday.

Collaborating entities in this effort include district administration, police, parking authorities, and the Lahore Waste Management Company (LWMC). A public appeal is issued for voluntary encroachment removal.
The DC reaffirmed the stringent implementation of a zero-tolerance policy against encroachments. With a stern warning, she asserted that criminal proceedings under the Encroachment Act will be initiated against individuals found engaging in encroachments. INP
