"A number of property owners in Defence Colony, Greater Kailash I, South Extension I and II and in adjoining areas had carried out illegal constructions in their homes. We had done a survey in all these colonies and have now started taking action," said a senior MCD official.

Demolition action was taken against 11 properties by the building department of

the MCD with the help of

Delhi Police.

"We demolished illegal portions at ground and third floors. Also, illegitimate construction in the stilt area was also demolished. We will continue to take further action," added the official.
