New Delhi: Acting tough against unauthorised constructions, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Friday demolished illegal portions in eight properties.

The demolition action was carried out by MCD's Building Department with the help of local police in areas like Vishwakarma Colony in Central Zone and Sawan Park and Shalimar village in Rohini Zone.

"During the drive, the demolition squad and the police faced stiff resistance from the locals," an official said.

The civic body drew criticism over rampant growth of unauthorised constructions in the city after a building with illegal floors collapsed in east Delhi in November last year, killing 71 people. Since then, it has undertaken regular drives to demolish illegal structures across the capital.
