Dozen injured in Ghaziabad violence

Ghaziabad, Aug 31 (IANS) About a dozen people, including policemen, were injured here on Monday when police used force to free a plot from encroachment, officials said.

The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) sought police help to get a 2,012-square metre plot freed from encroachers after a crowd began pelting stones at a bulldozer and GDA employees.

“Finding no other option, police used force against the mob,” police officer Randhir Singh said.

The plot was allotted to a builder who wanted to start construction. “The GDA was bound to hand it over to him encroachment-free,” he added.
