ANTI-ENCROACHMENT DRIVE: The tehsil municipal administration on Friday launched an anti-encroachment campaign in Mansehra city and on its outskirts.
A joint team of the TMA and police officials removed handcarts, destroyed illegal structures, and took away goods placed outside shops on Abbottabad Road, Kashmir Road and Shinkiari Road.
