Locals squatting on my land: Executive

An executive, employed with a multinational company in Gurgaon, claimed on Saturday that a plot of land, which belongs to his mother and two other relatives, has been illegally occupied by some locals.

Suresh Kakkar, head of pre-sales, Wipro, and a resident of Dwarka in New Delhi, said three of his relatives have owned a 750-square yard plot in New Palam Vihar area for the past 21 years. They had bought the land in 1992.

“We came to know about the occupation on June 17 this year. We tried registering an FIR with the Palam Vihar police station, but they refused to register it. We had cordoned off our land by putting a boundary wall around it, but the encroachers razed it to start their construction,” said Kakkar.

The hassled executive further said that he had also met Gurgaon police commissioner Alok Mittal and former deputy commissioner PC Meena regarding the encroachment, but all his efforts to get justice met with failure.

“The police made us sign an agreement which said neither of the two parties would begin construction on the site before the matter was settled, but the encroachers have began building structures and the police have not made any efforts to stop them despite our several requests,” alleged Kakkar.

The executive has filed a writ petition at the Punjab and Haryana High Court and the case would come up for hearing next Monday.

Investigating officer Ashok was not available for comments on the matter.
