Such operations have been carried out in the market in the past too as, according to the district administration, the whole market was unlawful, and it had been set up on the railway land.
A couple of months ago, a special team of the railway officials had demolished all the shops with a warning to the shopkeepers of stringent action. However, some days after the operation, scores of shops again sprouted on the land and the shopkeepers started doing business.
