The Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) officials on Thursday demolished three illegal buildings being built in Chhaprabhata area under police security. The builder is the nephew of Surat mayor Niranjan Janjmera, the officials said.

According to sources, the construction of three-storey building on five plots at Amrakunj society in Chhaprabhata was being carried out by one Anil Janjmera, nephew of Surat mayor Niranjan Janjmera. The society residents had complained to the SMC about the illegal construction going on in their area, a few days ago. SMC officials of Katargam zone said that they had earlier served notices to the builder seeking explanation to the complaints of the society residents. They had also tried to contact him over Anil’s mobile phone but of no avail. Acting on the complaint, the civic demolition staff of Katargam zone demanded the SMC permission letter, and plan copy from the persons present at the construction site. After learning about this, Anil Janjmera rushed to the site but did not cooperate with the civic staff.
