CB sleuths recorded their statements. Sufferers handed over the documentary proof of their pieces of land to the CB team which after going through the same realized that the revenue officials who were entrusted the job of compensation on that occasion had devaluated the land and distributed prices of land in three categories- Rs 10,000 per kanal, Rs 15,000 per kanal and to maximum of Rs 25,000 per kanal. While the value of the piece of land per kanal was Rs 90,000 on that occasion. When the land was occupied by the government in 2000 land owners were told that they were given the prices of land as per current rate, people alleged to the visited team.
