GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 8: A government official was thrashed by some miscreants for opposing their bid to allegedly grab land meant for use of a government school at Alucha Bagh in south City. The locals have condemned the attack as they appealed the police to take strict action against the accused.
Eyewitnesses told Greater Kashmir the miscreants attacked the government official, near Alucha Bagh when he was returning from his office.
The official, as per the locals, has been opposing alleged land grab adjacent to a Government school, at Alucha Bagh.
“The moment I reached the spot, I saw some people dumping construction material in the school compound. I approached them to ask why they were doing it without any permission? But instead of speaking a word all of them pounced upon me and beat me up ruthlessly,” he said.
The locals said the government had earmarked the land for school compound but due to paucity of funds it couldn’t be walled in-time.
They said some individuals living in the vicinity made several attempts to grab the land but failed as the majority of locals opposed the moves.
The locals said the alleged land grabbers want to take advantage of the “present circumstances in Valley”.
“They are trying their best to encroach upon the land since the attention of police and administration has got diverted to other things these days,” they added.
A senior police official posted in south City said the matter will be looked into immediately.
Meanwhile the locals have appealed the District Development Commissioner Srinagar and Director of School Education Kashmir to look into the matter.
“The land will serve a blessing for school and we don’t want to loose it at any cost,” the locals said.
