Balor Singh, an NRI from Germany, has alleged that the suspects involved in the alleged usurpation of his 3-acre land have started threatening him.
Balor Singh, originally a resident of Dholan village, Ludhiana, said that he had brought 3-acres land worth crores in 1998 in Sherpur village, Ludhiana and developed a brick kiln on the plot. He went to Germany in 2002 and lent this land along with the brick kiln on a 10-year lease to Sikandar Singh, a resident of same village. After Sikandar's death, his (Sikandar's) nephew Jagjivan Singh took the land in his possession.
On July 4, Singh complained to the police that Jagjivan Singh had refused to vacate the land, after the 10-year lease expired this year. The NRI claimed that Jagjivan, along with the other accused, prepared forged documents (fake power of attorney) and managed to register the land in the names of Gurdev Singh of Sher Kalan and Gurcheen Singh of Rattonwal.
Nine people have been booked in the case and are absconding. The NRI has demanded police protection and assistance to take back possession of the land.
