Bibi-ka-Maqbara area is littered with encroachments. These encroachments had
disfigured the tomb area. It has been decided to develop the tomb premises
through the Smart City campaign. Many people claim to own the place. So it was
decided to delete the encroachments. In this regard, Superintendent of Archaeology
Dr. Milind Kamar Chavale had given a letter to AMC. Accordingly, Administrator
and Commissioner Astik Kumar Pandey ordered to remove the encroachment. Meanwhile,
the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation had issued a notice to Jayaraj Pandey who
had rushed to the court against the notice issued by the AMC and the
Archaeology Department. The application was heard but the court did not grant
relief to Pandey. The encroachment removal department took action on Tuesday
after the lawyer Deepak Padole on the AMC panel informed about this. When the
team led by Additional Commissioner Ravindra Nikam reached for the action at 11
am, the action was opposed.
