Tahsildar suspended

Based on the divisional commissioner's 20-page report on irregularities in allotting government land at Devanahalli, the State Government suspended Asha Parveen, Channarayapattana Deputy Tahsildar Narayanappa, First Grade Assistant Venkataswamy, Shirastedar V G Angadi, Revenue Inspector Gopalakrishna, Village Accountant G Ramaiah and Surveyor M Govindaiah.

The report said Asha has allotted government land in survey number 148 at Somatthanahalli of Channarayapatana to Krishnappa and Narayanamma. It claimed that the official had created a bogus khata for 3.02 acres of government land in Tailagere of Kundana hobli in the taluk. She had "amended" survey number for a piece of land without following procedures on an application from a person in Avathi, Kasaba hobli.

 The official had earlier got a stay on her transfer. Also, a criminal case had been booked against her for 'trespassing' and damaging public property at the K R Puram tahsildar office. 'Acting' tahsildar C L Shiva Kumar had lodged a complaint against her when she broke open the door lock and entered the office.  Sources in the taluk office said, Asha Parveen didn't turn up in the office for the last two days fearing imminent arrest based on the 'acting' tahsildar's complaint.
