The authorities completed the demolitions in Khariwado within a day without any untoward incident on Thursday. Although 70 structures were identified for demolition only 66 were demolished by the end of the day. While one was spared because it was religious structure, owners of another three managed to get a stay order at the eleventh hour.
The demolitions which commenced at 9:30 am were completed at 5 pm in the presence of a strong police force number over 600.
Although in the morning Vasco wore a deserted look as most establishments downed their shutters fearing a law and order situation, by afternoon most of them resumed operations on realizing that the situation was well under control.
As the demolitions have been completed, Section 144 that was invoked for three days has been revoked by the authorities.
