The settlement, which was illegally established on the land of Kukrel river, was demolished by bulldozers.

Akbarnagar in Lucknow is now buried in the pages of history. The settlement, which was illegally established on the land of Kukrel river, was demolished by bulldozers. Once there were permanent houses, roads and population, today the place has turned into a pile of rubble. Ruins of broken houses and shops can be seen all around. The illegal structure built on about 24.5 acres of land has been demolished.

Akbarnagar of Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, was inhabited at the time of independence. The land on which people built it belonged to the Kukrel River. Once a river used to flow here. The state government has proposed to build a river front on this land to beautify the city. Because of this, a joint team of Development Authority, Municipal Corporation, Police and District Administration completely demolished Akbarnagar, which was illegally settled on river land.

1200 illegal structures were razed

Demolition work was started from June 10. To stop it, the people living here went from the High Court to the Supreme Court, but they were disappointed as the construction was illegal. After the court order, the bulldozers have started reducing their work here. By Tuesday night, 1169 residences and 101 commercial buildings had been demolished and leveled.
