According to local residents, the demolition team conducted its work under heavy security. A large team of police and soldiers set up an outer cordon around the compound to keep spectators away.
“After arriving in the area, the soldiers and the policemen cordoned off the entire town from all sides and did not allow the local residents to enter or leave Bilal Town,” a resident Momin Khan told local English daily The News.
He told the paper, “we believed the army would use explosives to blow up the building but it wasn’t the case”. Instead, Momin Khan said, five heavy cranes were used to demolishing the structures.
Since the May 2 incident, the compound was controlled by the security agencies and no one was allowed to enter in the compound.
On the other hand government officials neither confirming nor denying the reports.
