Deeli in Jammu

 A special anti-corruption court here has directed the state vigilance organisation to probe fraudulent land deal in Deeli in Jammu, allegedly involving government officials.

Special judge (anti-corruption) Puneet Gupta ordered that the complaint be sent to Jammu senior superintendent of police (vigilance), with directions to proceed in the case.

Vipan Agarwal had filed a complaint that land in his father Nand Lal Aggarwal’s name at Deeli in Jammu was illegally sold by making a fake power of attorney in connivance with revenue officials.

Agarwal had filed a case in the court of the anti-corruption judge against the Jammu tehsildar (settlement), naib tehsildar, patwari and others, who sold the land illegally.
In his complaint, he said they made a fake power of attorney, and fudged revenue records and plot maps in league with revenue department officials. Then they sold his plot illegally to several persons.

The fake power of attorney was first allegedly made in 1984 for Bansi Lal, a non-existent person, in connivance with revenue officials, Agarwal said. Then the land was illegally sold several times, he said.

The court said the perusal of the power of attorney revealed that neither any khasara number (registration), khewat number nor allotment order of any land in Deeli was mentioned, yet all the power of transfer under the cover of attorney stood obtained.
The court ordered the SVO to probe the matter.
