Residents of Krishna Vihar colony here have for long complained against illegal factories burning plastic and scrapped insulated cables to extract aluminum and copper, and polluting the locality with harmful emissions.

The owners would be identified and FIRs lodged against them, the DCP said, adding that more such demolition drives would be initiated in future to check pollution.
