Jagannath Land encroached in Nimapada


Nimapada (Puri), Feb 10: The Jagannath Land scam came to fore with the allegations by the locals in Nimapada of Puri district. The villagers have demanded a probe into the matter.

The locals of the area alleged that some land mafias have encroached the land of Lord Jagannath at Nuharikiri Mouza and built a road to convert the type of land for complete occupation.

Even, the entire process has done without the knowledge of the Marfatdar of the land. Talking to Naxatra News, Milan Debagoswami, Marfatdar of the land said, "How the mafias converted the land and how they occupied I do not have idea". 

The Jagannath land is of sarada dofasali type which can never be changed as per the rule. However, the type of the land was converted. Opposing the encroachment, the villagers had approached the court seeking justice following which the Puri Sub collector was directed to submit a probe report on the matter.

However, no action has been taken yet, alleged the villagers.

When asked the Revenue Inspector about the scam, Ravinarayan Mallick said that he will welcome the judgment whatever it will be by the court and the government.
