Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 13: In the much publicized Public Interest Litigation (PIL) highlighting land grabbing and encroachment of more than 20 lakh kanal of State Land by politicians, bureaucrats, police officers in league with land mafia, today a Division Bench of the State High Court Jammu Wing comprising Justice Alok Aradhe and Justice B.S Walia expressed displeasure over the infighting and taking of divergent stances by the JDA, Revenue and Police in the ongoing demarcation exercise of more than 66,000 Kanals of JDA land in Jammu/Samba districts as per the directions of the Division Bench vide its order dated December 10,2014 read with order dated May 23, 2017.
Advocates appearing for the PIL at the very outset submitted that land mafia is causing obstruction in the ongoing demarcation drive and there is every apprehension of law and order problem and invited the attention of the Division Bench towards order dated December, 10, 2014 passed by a Division Bench of the State High Court then headed by Chief Justice M. M. Kumar (Since retired) wherein the Division Bench had directed for videography of the entire demarcation exercise of JDA Land in Jammu/ Samba.
Advocate Adarsh Sharma appearing for JDA produced the fresh status report in the open court wherein it was divulged that the JDA took up the matter with the Deputy Commissioners Jammu/ Samba and also communicated the details of the Khasra Nos wherein the Revenue record was awaited despite identification/ demarcation of JDA Land. The status report further said that Director Land Management, JDA vide letter no. JDA/ DLM/HQA/ 487-95 dated 23.08.2017 and letter no. JDA/DLM/ HQA/ 496-504 dated 23.08.2017 even intimated the Deputy Com-missioners, Jammu/ Samba respectively about the poor progress of demarcation of JDA Land.
Advocate Adarsh Sharma also invited the attention of the DB to the indifferent attitude of Police Authorities and referred letter No. VC/PS/2017/837/41 dated 29.08. 2017 whereby IGP Jammu was requested for providing police protection on permanent basis in terms of the direction passed by the DB on August 4, 2017. However, due to non-availability of permanent security both for eviction/removal of encroachment and to the officers of JDA, the work suffered and could not be expedited. There were certain cases wherein the territorial revenue staff could not carry out demarcation work due to resistance from the land mafia, despite presence of police.
On being confronted with the status report filed by the JDA, Deputy Advocate General Ehsan Mirza appearing for Revenue/ Police Departments countered the stance taken by JDA and submitted that Revenue Department has issued clear cut instructions to all the territorial Tehsildars to extend full cooperation to JDA in the ongoing demarcation exercise.
After considering the rival contentions from both the sides the Division Bench while expressing its displeasure over the divergent stances taken by JDA, Revenue and Police directed the videography of the entire demarcation exercise and also directed Revenue and JDA to file updated status reportwithin three weeks and Deputy AG Ehsan Mirza also undertook to comply the directions of the Division Bench in its letter and spirit.
