The Gauhati High Court has ordered a CBI inquiry into allegations against an Assam minister that he had branded two sisters as witches and harassed them in a bid to grab their land in Karbi Anglong district.
A police complaint was lodged Thursday against a luxury hotel in Noida following allegations of land grabbing and construction of the facility on a gram samaj land worth Rs.11 crore, a government spokesman said here.
Brushing aside the AIADMK charge that
he had encroached on a piece of land, DMK chief M Karunanidhi
on Tuesday invited a legislators delegation to ascertain for
themselves the land in use at his Gopalapuram residence.
Reiterating that his partymen were being jailed under false land grab cases, DMK chief M Karunanidhi expressed fears that the issue could be used as a tool against political parties and could prove handy for anti-social elements.
Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK government on Thursday underlined its determination to act against land grab cases, in which connection many DMK functionaries have been jailed, assuring victims their "lost property" would be reclaimed.
