The High Court on Wednesday ordered status quo to be maintained in respect of more than 300 acres of land situated at Attapur in Ranga Reddy district for six weeks and directed the authorities concerned to come clean on the issue of who and why the changes were effected in the revenue records effecting a change of ownership of these lands.

Justice Ramesh Ranganathan was dealing with a petition filed by Yousuf Begum and her son Azam Shareef who submitted that the joint collector of Ranga Reddy district and RDO of Chevella along with the tahsildar of Rajendranagar had colluded with unscrupulous private individuals and deleted their names from revenue records and brought in the names of private persons.

The RDO’s alleged proceedings, copies of which were filed in the court, show that the names of one P Madhusudan Reddy and a few others were brought into the records in the place of the petitioners. The MRO, RDO and joint collector had maintained earlier that the records pertaining to this transaction were missing in their offices.

When the judge summoned principal secretary (revenue) BR Meena, he appeared in the court on Wednesday but he too said that the file was missing. He, however, informed the court that he has ordered a probe into the matter and that he would inform the court the result of the probe soon.
