Illegal purchase of tribal land: Collector orders to register FIR against Patwari, DR

RAIGARH (Chhattisgarh): Collector and District Magistrate Mukesh Bansal on Wednesday asked SDM Gharghoda to register FIR against the Patwari and the Deputy Registrar concerned in a case of illegal purchase of 70-acre agriculture land of scheduled tribe farmers at Barpali village in Tamnar tehsil of Raigarh district.

The collector, citing an under disposal case in his court, told the SDM that Sushil Lakda son of Alphons Lakda, resident of village Banki in Sundargarh district of Odisha state, has purchased about 70-acre farmland of tribal farmers of Barpali village in Raigarh district.

Referring sections 341 and 342 of the Constitution, the collector said that scheduled tribe people from other states could not be given the benefits that are given to the same category in Chhattisgarh. Hence, the farmland purchased by Sushil Lakda from the tribal farmers comes under ‘Benami’ transfer and this deal has been done in collusion with the Patwari and the Deputy Registrar concerned.

The collector, considering the deputy registrar and the patwari guilty of the deal, has ordered to register FIR against both of them. The collector expressed displeasure over the non-compliance of instructions issued in this regard to the SDM earlier.
