Land grab case: No clue yet on beneficiary

Even three days after investigations into the Rs 700 crore land grab case of Peer Muchalla,the Zirakpur police is yet to identify the person who benefitted from the scam.

Over 70 acres of forest land owned by the government was shown to have been transferred in the name of one Shiv Dayal son of Babu Singh son of Amar Singh in the tampered jamabandis.

The police has not been able to find who this person is as there is no address written on the tampered jamabandis. However,the police has gathered the records of the case and identified the various patwaris posted in Dera Bassi who handled the records since 2008.

“At least ten people handled the records in this period. These include patwaris, two helpers and qanungos (revenue officials). All have been identified and called to the police station tomorrow,” said the Zirakpur SHO Tirlochan Singh.
