In the morning when Okhlaiites got up they saw security beefed up in the locality. Police in several buses started coming to the locality, said residents, adding that for a while they were curious to know the reason.
Many guessed that maybe as Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan arrested on Wednesday in connection with sexual harassment case filed by his sister-in-law was to be presented in court for bail.
However, it was only in the evening that some residents came to know that the security was beefed up as a demolition operation was to be carried. OKHLATIMES.COM was unable to authenticate the development independently.
But this is not for the first time that heavy security was deployed in Okhla something that used to be rare of the rarest site in the locality. Residents still remember how a few months ago large number of police had turned up in the locality to free Jamia’s land from encroachment.
The operation was carried out successfully and the occupied land worth crores was freed. Moreover, on Sunday locality witnessed huge deployment of police force as MLA Khan had announced to surrender in the case. Despite being turning up at the Jamia Nagar Police Station, the cops refused to arrest him.
