A team of officials visited the Naubad tank in Bidar on Monday and inspected encroachments on the tank bund.
Some youth organisations had complained to the government that the tank has been suffering encroachments, top-soil mining by brick kiln workers and cultivation of crops in the catchment area and tank bed.
Officials measured the tank area and checked for signs of encroachments. They also checked the documents of the brick kiln manager and the farmers cultivating crops there.
Assistant Commissioner Annies K. Joy instructed officials to close the brick kiln as it was running without valid permits. She asked senior geologist S. Kumar to submit a report on the encroachments and said that action will be taken after further investigation.
