Karachi Metropolitan Corporation has opened Gate no. 2 from Frere Hall to the public after removing encroachment from there.
KMC anti-encroachment department officials removed the iron warehouse installed at the gate on Saturday.
KMC Senior Director Bashir Siddiqui said the operation was carried out at the direction of Karachi Administrator Iftikhar Shallwani.
He said the warehouse had been installed over the past ten years as part of a security measure for the US Consulate General which was previously on Abdullah Haroon Street near the Marriot Hotel. The US Consulate was moved to Mai Kolachi Street in 2010.
In another operation, KMC eliminated encroachment from Songal Nullah in Gulshan-e-Iqbal. It has been four days since KMC started removing illegal buildings from the rainwater drains.
The KMC anti-encroachment team destroyed around 250 illegal houses, shops and other buildings with the help of heavy equipment. Siddiqui said the anti-encroachment team cleared a 1.5-kilometer section of the rainwater channel.
The 50-foot-wide canal has been reduced to only 2-4 feet because of this encroachment, according to the official. He said they would restore the true width of the Songal Nullah.
The operation will continue until all encroachment is removed, Siddiqui added.
