Siliguri, 07th January: An under-construction house in the railway land of Ward No. 28 Tikiapara was demolished by the Railway Protection Force (RPF).
Reportedly, Haril Sahani had been running a rice hotel for more than 30 years at the said railway land. In December, he lifted the shop and started the construction work of a house in the said land. This morning, when he and his wife were out for work, the RPF personnel allegedly carried out a demolition drive during that time.
Haril Sahani alleged that several people have also built houses on railway lands. He apparently took a bank loan for the house. He now demands that either his house should be rebuilt or the loan should be repaid.
