Residents of Jammu including women on Monday held a massive protest i​​n Bathindi accompanied by the people from Sunjwan and adjoining areas against the eviction notices served to them by the authorities, locals said. The notices were served as a part of an ongoing anti-encroachment drive across Jammu and Kashmir to retrieve the state land. They said that the people, holding national flags in their hands, assembled here and appealed to the government to regularise their colonies like other illegal colonies which were regularised by the government in the past. To calm down the tempers of the people, officials from the administration reached the spot and tried to convince the protesters that notices were served to the illegal commercial places. The locals said that the people were not ready to accept and continued their protest till the filing of this report. The protest was peaceful and all efforts are being made to convince the people that poor people and residential houses will not be touched. ​All​ the​ commercial market​s are​ closed in Bathindi​ while ​Sunjwan and Malik Market​ are also up in protest​.​
