Assn plea to file criminal case against Bopaiah, Devaiah

Madikeri, Apr 12, 2013, DHNS :
M B Devaiah and K G Bopaiah

Kodagu Ekikrana Ranga has urged the authorities concerned to file criminal case against Karnataka Forest Industries Development Corporation President M B Devaiah for receiving government land under Akrama-Sakrama scheme and against MLA K G Bopaiah for sanctioning the land as the Akrama Sakrama committee president.

Releasing the documents to the mediapersons here on Friday, office-bearer M K Appachu, A A Poovaiah, T M Pramod and K M Jayakumar accused that land has been sanctioned illegally to M B Devaiah and his wife M D Thayamma, at Hebbettageri in Madikeri taluk.

Devaiah and his wife Thayamma were owning 19.73 acre ancestral property. However, they had filed an application seeking land under Akrama Sakrama scheme on August 19, 1991.


 In the application, Devaiah had given false information that he owned only 2.14 acre land. Similarly, Thayamma        had filed an application on March 31, 1999 and did not furnish details on the land in her name.

Without looking at the reality, the revenue officials had recommended to sanction three acre land on survey number 20/1 at Hebbettageri to Devaiah and three acre land to M D Thayamma in 2002. K G Bopaiah became the president of Madikeri taluk Akrama Sakrama Samithi in 2006 and he gave a life to the application submitted by Devaiah in 1991 and sanctioned additional 1.70 acre land in survey number 43/17, without considering previous sanctions.

As per the guidelines of Akrama Sakrama committee, any individual who possess more than five acre land should not be sanctioned government land. However, in this particular case, the rules have been violated, they said.

The office-bearers urged the government to reclaim the government land sanctioned to M B Devaiah and his wife. The authorities should also file criminal case against K G Bopaiah, revenue officials and M B Devaiah.

Furnishing false details to avail government land is a punishable offence under Karnataka Land Revenue Act.

They said that the government should constitute a special court to probe into the incident.

The Ekikarana Ranga will approach the court of law, to urrge the authorities to constitute a special court to deal with the illegality on akrama sakrama scheme.
