The operation, jointly participated by officers and workers of Land and Mineral Office, Penang Municipal Council, Works Department, District Office, as well as policemen moved to the site at about 10.15am on Tuesday with a bulldozer and several lorries.
The NGO members then surrounded the officers, started to heckle them and asking them to forego their plan.
At the midst of the discussion, the group started to act aggressively by pushing, shoving and slapping the the officers, believed to be from the Land and Mineral Department.
The police managed to calm down the group before the machines and enforcers left the scene.
