District town planner Vinesh Kumar said that the commercial building of the “Sahara Family Restaurant” was constructed illegally. He said that it was the same building from where hooligans pelted stones on a religious procession. 
“The building was totally unauthorised and it was served notices by the Government and department. The hotel-cum-restaurant is completely unauthorised. Hooligans had pelted stones on the yatra from here. So, this action is being taken,” Kumar said. 
Earlier on Saturday morning, the Nuh district administration razed down over 45 “illegal” shops in the Nalhar road area.
