Traffic police evict encroachers along RIMS road
Traffic police today evicted illegal road side encroachers along RIMS road stretch in order to provide congestion free traffic to the public.
The eviction was conducted in connection with an order to the effect released by superintendent of Police (traffic) yesterday.
During the eviction, traffic police accompanied by city police removed and seized all illegal movable and immovable items from the road side along the stretch, including signboards erected on the footpath by private clinics, hospitals and shops.
Mentioned may be made that Traffic Control Police Wing had notified yesterday to the hospitals, clinics, laboratories, shopkeepers and business units which have encroached on either side of the RIMS Road stretch to remove their respective movable and immovable articles from the side which has been declared as parking area for two and four wheelers.
Speaking to media, one of the commuters expressed that the step should have taken up long time back as illegal parking and encroachments have caused severe problems to the commuters.
The stretch functions as one of the most important roads as it reaches RIMS hospital. During emergencies, injured persons or patients needing urgent care have died along the stretch as they failed to reach RIMS hospital due to traffic congestion on the stretch. The commuter urged the government to take similar steps along other roads to remove illegal encroachers on roadsides.
Traffic police seized the police barricades kept in front of Sky hospital, bricks, sands and other construction items which were piled on roadside. Shop items which were kept on footpath were also seized.
As a part of the drive, illegal vehicles parked on southern side of the road were also seized. Later, SP (traffic) instructed land encroachers to remove immovable items immediately.
Police warned that the owners of the seized items will be taken legal actions for misusing public property and for harassing the moving traffic.
Eviction was conducted under the instruction of superintendent of police (traffic), Khoisnam Sarma who was led by deputy superintendent of police (traffic) K. Bijoy and the team was accompanied by traffic police officer-in-charge with police personnel of city police.
