Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Removal gang of Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC), which had gone to demolish a 80-year-old residential building in Sanyogitaganj area but had returned following pressure from BJP leaders, went again and knocked down the dilapidated building on Tuesday.
Of late, a portion of the residential building owned by a builder Satish Gupta had collapsed. Following the information, IMC removal gang reached the area to demolish the building but tenant protested against demolition drive.
They made IMC removal gang to talk to some BJP leaders over phone who asked civic body officials not to demolish it.
Though IMC officials were convinced that the building was dilapidated and a threat to human lives, they returned without demolishing it.

Eventually, the removal gang returned to the area and razed the building.
