Srinagar: Authorities in Kashmir on Wednesday demolished an outer wall and a structure at residence of National Conference general secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar near the airport here, claiming it was built on the State land.

Officials said the outer wall and the main gate as well as the entry of the guard room of Sagar’s residence in the Humhama area on the outskirts of the city were demolished as part of the administration’s action against the encroachment on State land.

Sagar, a former minister, or his family were not present in the house at the time of the demolition, the officials said.

The National Conference (NC) condemned the action, saying it smacks of political vendetta.

“JKNC condemns the dismantling of the outer wall at Party General Secretary @AliMSagar_’s house at Humhama. Such actions of the government clearly smack of political vendetta, and the misuse of government machinery for the same,” the party said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, NC leader and Sagar’s son, Salman Sagar in a message posted on social media said that the wall and the structure were constructed on propriety land owned by his mother and all relevant orders were obtained.

“This is political vendetta. The land is propriety land owned by mother, it is not state land,” he said in his message, adding, the administration has also withdrawn their security.
