Jaypee Group officials have been booked for holding a priest captive and demolishing a temple in Nangla Nangli village, police said on Sunday.
“I had asked Jaypee officials to show me records of the land, if it belongs to them,” Pawan Malik, the investigating officer said.
On Saturday, a complaint was lodged by Vijay Chauhan, resident of Nangla Nangli, against Jaypee group officials, alleging that they uprooted trees and some structures of a temple on Friday night.
The complainant also said the developers’ representative held the priest captive. The temple is five decades old.
