During the anti-encroachment drive on April 20 in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area, no house was demolished and no community was targeted during this period. The North Delhi Urban Body, controlled by the BJP, gave this information in the Supreme Court on Monday. In response to the petitions challenging the action in Jahangiapuri, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation termed these allegations as outright lies and demanded action against the petitioners.
