Mysuru, January 11:- Several powerful people have encroached the land of an elderly woman and constructed houses at H D Kote. Though the court has instructed them to vacate the land, they have not agreed.
They have constructed 8 houses at Survey number 37, Yarahalli at 1.22 acres of land belonging to one Nagamma. When Nagamma questioned them, they beat her up and dumped her on the ring road. Local activists are in support of the woman.
These powerful men have not responded to the notices given by the Village Panchayat and are still constructing more houses. It is alleged that even officials have supported this illegal construction. Though the Chief Secretary of the Chief Minister has written a letter to take action, no action has been taken yet. As soon as the illegal works came to limelight, the files have been shifted from Village Panchayat to Town Municipal Council chief officer overnight. (MR/KS)
