Ten people arrested in case of illegal possession of government land worth Rs 500 Crore

In a development, ten people, including three outsourced employees of the Dharani portal, were apprehended in connection with an alleged illegal possession case involving a five-acre government land in Manikonda. The land, valued at over Rs 500 crore, was not specifically allocated to any government department but was unequivocally declared as state property.

According to sources, the adjacent 62 acres of government land in Survey No. 4 was allotted to the Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (now the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority) and the Housing Board in 1986 However, the five-acre plot in question is not allocated.

Krishna and Prahalad, two brothers, attempted to claim this land illegally and sought legal assistance from a lawyer in Moosapet. During this process, they collaborated with real estate agent Ravinder Yadav, who promised to facilitate a 50-50 share of the land.

Subsequently, Ravinder Yadav hired Bhim Rao, a journalist/journalist, who put them in touch with three outsourced employees of the Dharani section of the revenue department. These employees, said to be lower-level employees of the Rangareddy Collectorate office, colluded with individuals and submitted documents to the collector seeking approval of the Pattadar passbooks.

Amid a busy election schedule, the collector approved the documents, resulting in the issuance of two pattadar e-passbooks to the duo in October and November. However, investigations revealed that the individuals attempted to acquire legal ownership of the prohibited land despite the absence of valid documents.

The matter came to light after the local Mandal Revenue Officer (NRO) observed discrepancies in the issuance of e-Pattadar passbooks for the land. Subsequently, the Gandipet MRO filed a complaint at the Raidurgam police station, leading to the transfer of the case to the Economic Crimes Branch of the Cyberabad police station.

This development highlights the vigilance required in safeguarding government assets and the need for strict enforcement of land laws to prevent unauthorized possession and transactions.
