The Jammu and Kashmir vigilance department has lodged a land grabbing case against senior Congress leader and former state minister Taj Mohi-ud-Din.
The vigilance department has alleged that some revenue officials linked to the Congress leader had tampered with official records to help him grab the forest land in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.
“A Case FIR No. 06/2016 under section 5(1)(d) r/w 5(2) J&K P.C. Act sections 468, 471 and 120-B RPC in Police Station Vigilance Organization Kashmir was registered against Atiqullah Shah S/o Sonuallah Shah R/o Chimar Noorabad Kulgam and other officers/officials of Revenue Department and the beneficiary Taj Mohi-ud-Din S/o Khuda Baksh R/o Batamaloo Srinagar,” the vigilance department said in a press note.
The officials, including Shah, then a clerk in Tehsil office, had allegedly made “insertions and corrections” in the revenue records and prepared fake records to pave way for the former minister to encroach the land.
