Can Anyone Remove Blocks from A Blockchain?

The removal of blocks from a blockchain entirely depends on how it is handled. It is not possible to manually remove a block. However, if it is lost, the blockchain generally tries to rebuild the database using other peers.
Once they are verified, they can be deleted to lower the blockchain size as it does not require anyone to do normal operations. It can be re-downloaded again when needed. This process is known as pruning.
