The two disputed gates installed by 'some unscrupulous residents' of Rishi Nagar locality were finally removed by the Municipal Corporation on Friday.
The move was taken after few residents came up with their complaints that some residents of the same locality used to lock the gates thereby restricting the entry of others to the colony.
Officials of the building branch of Zone D reached the spot on Friday and removed the gates with the help of a JCB machine. Officials said that the residents had repeatedly complained about the closure of gates after which a warning was also issued to those responsible.
General secretary of Rishi Nagar Citizen's Council Sunil Vashist had filed several complaints in the past with the MC as well as with the police.
“Some residents in the locality used to lock the gates after which the movement of other residents was restricted causing grave inconvenience to them,” Vashist said.
He said, “We had written a letter to the MC on June 25 last year, after which the gates were opened but people started locking the gates again at night and no one then bothered to open them even.”
Assistant town planner (ATP) of Zone D Rajinder Singh said that residents of the locality had complained that the two gates be removed permanently as they wanted to get rid of them at the earliest.
“The two gates were removed on Friday,” Sharma said.
