A mobile court in a daylong drive removed 20 illegal shops at Park Kitchen Market in the town yesterday.
The shops include poultry shop, vegetable shop and grocery.
Executive Magistrate Sukhamoy Sarkar along with a police team led the court.
The magistrate said following the government direction, they had served notices to the owners to remove their illegal shops from the market but they did not do so, depriving the government of revenue.
Besides the illegal structures, they also demolished portions of several shops that the owners had extended illegally, he said.
The same court later went to the weekly Karatia Market in Tangail Sadar upazila and gave three-day ultimatum to the owners to remove their illegal structures at the market.
