Hyderabad: Land sharks across the state are not just gobbling up prime government land, they are also not sparing the private land bought by the war veterans.
For instance, a 1971 Bangladesh war veteran, is the land sharks’ latest victim.
Lt. Col. A.R. Raju (retd.), a city-based retired Army officer, has alleged that the land mafia has illegally occupied a piece of land he had bought in Shabaad mandal in Ranga Reddy district.
He also alleged that those who grabbed his land are carrying out illegal business in collusion with the revenue officials and local politicians.
“When I complained to the revenue officials against a local land mafia who grabbed my land they strongly defended him saying somebody else might have encroached upon it,” said Raju.
According to him, he was awarded eight acres of land in Chandanvalle village, but later the government imposed a blanket ban on land allotment to ex-servicemen.
Raju said he moved the High Court, which upheld the allotment but asked him to buy the land. “I bought the land, but have been denied possession ever since,” he said.
According to the retired Army official, he made the complaint to at least 10 officials in Ranga Reddy besides approaching the offices of the Prime Minister and Chief Minister, but to no avail.
The retired Army official also alleged that his attempt to get his land surveyed was also thwarted by the local villagers at the instance of the former sarpanch and his son.
“I believe revenue officials have sold my land to some other person who has fenced the boundaries of the land and also drilled in a borewell there,” Raju said.
Ranga Reddy district administration had, in 2012, asked for an enquiry report from the local tahsildar, but no report seems to have been submitted yet, he alleged.
Shabaad tahsildar Yadaiah said: “The entire village is government land. If you leave land without taking its physical possession, so-mebody will forcibly occupy it.”
He said, “The Army official had been assured that he would be allotted another tract of land in the village.”
