LAHORE : The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) launched a grand operation against land grabbers at Harbanspura and retrieved state land worth Rs 4 billion from land grabbers, demolished four commercial shops and boundary walls of four illegally occupied plots.

The ACE Lahore A launched the operation with the help of district administration and police at Harbanspura against land grabbers and retrieved 25 kanal lands, situated in dangerous area Chundian, Harbanspura, Lahore, worth Rs 4 billion. The area is known for agitations and resistance. That was the reason no operation was supposed to be conducted there.
