Srinagar, Jan 22: Pahalgam Development Authority today demolished two hutments at Arthnardan as part of its drive against illegal constructions within PDA jurisdiction in pursuance to the High Court orders.
According to PDA spokesman, the huts belonged to Nisar Ahmad Sheikh of Bhan Kulgam and Feroz Ahmad Bhat of Chadoora Budgam.  “The construction work was taken up through some locals of Arthnardan village. The violators had raised huge CGI sheds and were constructing huts within them to hoodwink authorities. The PDA field staff identified the huts and razed them to ground,” he added.
