The Times of India News Service

SONEPAT: More than 100 kutcha and pucca houses were razed to the ground by officials of the demolition squad with the help of the police in RK Colony on the GT Road about eight km from here, on Wednesday night.

According to reports, the residents of this colony became homeless and this resulted in widespread resentment among them.

Residents alleged, officials did not give them time to carry out their household articles.

Haryana Samajik Sangharsh Morcha president Prithvi Singh Chauhan condemned the action of the authorities in demolishing the housing colony of the poor and of Dalits and urged the Governor of Haryana to order a high level probe in the case and asked for stern action against erring officials.
