The Belgaum City corporation had sent notices over 776 notices for illegal encroachment on govt owned land which also included about 200 religious places.
The committee members of the different religious places met the commissioner and requested them not to destroy the temples. Currently the drive would be against encroachment other than religious places the city corporation said.
4 teams have been set up for the removal of these encroachments in the city. Even police protection has been sought for the anti encroachment teams.
