Civic body to probe illegal construction

Thane: The Thane municipal corporation will probe the allegations of bungalows constructed illegally within the ‘eco-sensitive zone’ of Yeour, officials informed. The development comes after Upa-LokAyukta, Sanjay Bhatia, chaired an online hearing of the application last week, which was filed by a Thane-based activist in 2021, following which it directed the Thane municipal commissioner Abhijit Bangar who was a respondent in the matter to investigate the issue and submit a report within the next 45 days. As many as seven lavish residential structures, apparently owned by relatives of former bureaucrats, have been built within the restricted area of the jungle which could impact movement of the wildlife, it is feared.
