JAMMU, Jan 13: On one hand the Lieutenant Governor led administration has been taking serious actions against the encroachments of state land but in district Kathua under the nose of administration several Kanals of a water body land has been encroached with structures came up along with dumping of material.
According to photographs in the possession of Early Times, a large tin shed along with some other structures are clearly visible along the banks of a rivulet, while raw material could also be seen dumped in several acres of areas around these structures.
The structures as well as material dumped along the banks of rivulet could be easily visible to everyone from the Magar-Khad bridge, along Jammu-Lakhanpur highway, just two kilometres short of Lakhanpur gateway.
Sources further informed that in the last few months since the lockdown, over two dozen structures have come up in the same area and encroachments have been going on unabated, while the administration has adopted a criminal silence over the whole matter. “The encroachment has been made by a scrap dealer, who has been throwing the wastage of the scrap into the rivulet, thus saving the cost of dumping scrap as well as doing his business through a government land”, an official said.
The official further informed that it was a general modus-operandi of encroachers to dump material in state land and then raise a temporary structure and after few months, made a new structure making the encroachment completely justified.
“When the floods had wracked havoc in Kashmir valley, the High Court had taken serious view of the encroachments and had ordered all the district administration to clear encroachments from 200 metres of both the banks but in district Kathua, several Kanals of land has been encroached but administration has become a mute spectator due to reasons best known to them”, sources said.
Assistant Commissioner Revenue Kathua Devinder Paul said that he would shortly take a report from the concerned Tehsildar and take proper action as per law.
