Muzaffarnagar riots: Encroachment cases lodged against 100 families
Muzaffarnagar: Cases have been registered against one hundred riot-hit families who have been living in a village in neighbouring Shamli district, for allegedly encroaching upon a government land, officials said on Wednesday.
Tehsildar Thakur Prasad yesterday lodged complaints against the families who have been living at Mansoora village under Jhinjhana police station after the September riots, Sub-Divisional Magistrate S K Singh told reporters.
Prasad in his complaint has alleged that the families have been camping on the land since the riots and have now even built brick cottages, Singh said.
Meanwhile in another case, the forest department has sent notice to 270 families asking them to vacate land in Roten village in the district.
These families have also allegedly encroached upon the forest land by camping there after the riots.
Over 60 people were killed and thousands left homeless during the riots in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas in September.
