ST PAUL School principal Saimon Fernandes was accused to have grabbed a few portions of a bungalow in the Cantonment with the help of local police, the SSP and some army personnel. Bhagwan Singh, a resident of bungalow no-1, Subhash Marg, Cantonment and a former teacher of St Paul School, leveled the allegations against the police, army personnel and the principal before mediapersons on Saturday.

Singh alleged that he had been staying in the bungalow for over four decades along with his family but the principal and a few persons were trying to evict him and his family from the bungalow.

Singh further alleged that former SSP Lucknow Kamal Saxena got one portion of the bungalow grabbed by principal’s brother Marc Fernandes on October 3, 2004. The then Cant SHO Veer Singh had helped Fernandes break into the portion and had grabbed it.

Later, Singh alleged, a sub-inspector (S-I) Piyush Singh again put a lock on another room of the bungalow in favour of Fernandes on March 24 this year. He alleged that the S-I was issuing threats to him (Singh) and his family members to either a compromise with Fernandes or face the music. Singh contacted the SSP Ashutosh Pandey too but to no avail.

On April 24, about 20 jawans of the army forcibly entered Singh’s bungalow and removed his belongings to the outhouse. When Singh and his family members raised an objection, the jawans allegedly threatened them aiming their guns.

Singh also submitted a complaint with the Lt General OP Nandrajog, the GOC-in-Chief of the Central Command seeking his intervention into the matter.                                 ,
