Must read

PNS|Visakhapatnam

Tension prevailed at the GITAM Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (GISMR) in Visakhapatnam as the revenue and the police officials reached the campus in the wee hours of Friday. They began the fencing work on land allegedly encroached upon by the university. The officials have arranged fencing to some extent of land near the GIMSR campus.

As per the reports, boundary walls near the GIMSR campus were demolished by the revenue officials long ago alleging unauthorised construction. Now fencing is being arranged around those lands by the officials.

Display boards were put up stating that the lands belonged to the government and that trespassers will be prosecuted.

Meanwhile, a large number of police officials and personnel reached the spot and arranged stoppers to prevent the public from entry including the media.

It may be recalled that in October 2020, the revenue officials, accompanied by police, undertook the demolition of the main gate, a portion of the compound wall, and a portion of fencing of the playground at GIMSR.

The police barricaded both ends of the road leading to the GITAM before taking up the demolition drive.

Revenue officials P Kishore said that 40 acres of government land was under the possession of the GITAM. The RDO said the demolition was taken up as per the government norms after marking the structures five months ago and taking possession of the vacant land occupied by the GITAM. He said that they surveyed the encroachments prior to the demolition and the GITAM management was fully aware of it. He said 15 acres in survey nos. 15/1 to 5 at Yendada and 36.07 acres in survey nos. 37 and 38 at Rushikonda were under the occupation of GITAM. The application for regularisation has been pending with the government since 2004.
