Education Dept to reclaim encroached land

LAHORE, July 25: The Education Department will the move courts to reclaim school buildings from encroachers, special secretary for schools Zahid Saeed said on Tuesday. Saeed said the department had prepared data on illegal possessors across Punjab and they would be treated according to the Illegal Dispossession Act 2005.

The department had sent letters to executive district officers (EDO) throughout the province in this regard, he added. He said a number of cases against illegal occupants were already in the courts. Law enforcement agencies were also told to help recover the assets of the Education Department from the encroachers. He said the lack of accurate information had prevented the department from taking action against the encroachers in the past. He said schools that might have been constructed illegally on private lands would be shifted to alternative places after the relevant rulings from the courts. Encroachers had occupied the land of more than 35 schools in Lahore alone, EDO Zahid Hussain said. Anyhow, the problem in Lahore was not as serious as in other districts of Punjab, he added.
