He made the above statement when the illegal construction of ‘Mazar’ was exposed. The Government has made a list of such illegal ‘Mazars’. It was found that the ‘Mazars’ were built in the last 20 years. Excavation work was done under a few ‘Mazars’, but no human remains were found, which shows that such ‘Mazars’ were false and built only to grab the land. From December 2022 to March 2023, the State Government demolished 41 such illegal ‘Mazars’, built on reserved forest land.
