Muslim boys orphanage gets land back

A prime property belonging to Muslim Boys Orphanage of Majlis-e-Rifahul Muslimeen on New Sayyaji Rao road in Mysore has been reverted back.

The site no 2202, measuring 117.6X100X115X100 feet, which was leased to Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (formerly Caltex India Ltd) in 1960 for a term of 10 years, was being renewed every 10 years for a rent of Rs 300 per month up to 1980.

The managing committee of the orphanage issued notice to HPC to vacate the Wakf property in 1980. Cases were filed in various courts. The judgement was in favour of HPC under Essential Commodities Act. Again, the present management under president MLA Tanveer Sait and secretary Syed Jalal filed a case under Public Premises Eviction Act with chief executive officer A B Ibrahim of Karnataka State Board of Wakf. Ibrahim ruled in favour of the orphanage on April 22, 2010. HPC appealed against the judgement before the sessions court in Mysore. The appeal was dismissed. HPC again appeal before the High Court. The secretary filed a caveat in the High Court. The HPC’s appeal was dismissed on July 13, 2011. It was asked to vacate within six months and pay rent up to March 31, 2012.

The premises was vacated by HPC representative S K Murali, area sales manager, on March 24 (Saturday). Varghees, contractor, HPC, Syed Ameen, manager of the orphanage and Syed Jalal, secretary, were present on the occasion.
