Last Updated: Friday, November 4, 2011 - 21:39

Allahabad: A Public Interest Litigation was
filed on Friday in the Allahabad High Court accusing a BSP MLA of
undertaking "illegal" construction of a college on a land he
had got recorded in his name by using his political clout.

The PIL has been filed by Bheem, a resident of Meja
tehsil in Allahabad district`s trans-Yamuna region.

The petitioner alleged Anand Kumar Pandey, alias
Collector Pandey, who represents the Karchana assembly seat,
had "got a piece of land, where a pond was situated, recorded
in his name in collusion with the Sub-Divisional Magistrate".

The petitioner alleged the ruling party MLA went on to
get a degree college constructed on the land and prayed for a
direction to the District Magistrate that the "illegal
construction be demolished and the pond be restored".

The PIL may be taken up for hearing next week.
Two other PIL`s are already pending before the High
Court. In one of the petitions, a CBI inquiry has been
demanded into the MLA`s alleged role in shielding one of his
relatives whose name had cropped up in a double murder case.

In the other PIL, installation of a statue of the MLA`s
father on a crossroad has been challenged.
