A police spokesperson said that the operation was launched early in the morning under the supervision of SP City Faraz Ahmad. He said the plaza in question was constructed in the Walled City area on two kanal of state land. “According to estimates, the plaza was not worth less than at least Rs 3 billion and it was illegally constructed by Teefi Butt Qabza group on the Walled City Authority land,” he added.
