A road after a 30-year quarrel

A road after a 30-year quarrel

Man had refused to give his land for road leading to neighbours house

The road to Bhagavanthappa's house passed through the land belonging to Anjinappa, his neighbour.

This led to a fight between the two families, which continued for three decades. Also, starting from the village court, the case had even reached the High Court. Bhagavanthappa's family members had also been imprisoned in relation to the

Other residents of the village, elected representatives, members of organisations, officers and even legislators had often tried to make peace between the two families, but to no avail.

Finally, Circle Inspector Krishnappa, rural police station Sub-inspector Jagadish, leaders of the village, tahsildar Bhima Naik and Deputy Commissioner Dr N Manjula guided the two parties to solve the problem and end the fight.

Thanks to the efforts of all people, family members of both Anjinappa and Bhagavanthappa withdrew the cases.

In addition, a 15-feet wide road has been built to Bhagavanthappa's house, passing through Anjinappa's land.

“We have lost lakhs of rupees over the three-decade long fight, roaming about courts and advocate offices instead of focusing on everyday work. We even lost peace of mind and our health,” said both Anjinappa and Bhagavanthappa. “We should have taken this step much earlier and hope this is a lesson for all people who approach the court over negligible issues.”

They expressed gratitude to Circle Inspectors Narasimhamurthy and Krishnappa and Sub-inspector Jagadish who helped them end the fight.
