MADURAI: Ramalingam, a Sivarakottai resident, petitioned Collector L Subramanian to retrieve the alleged encroached government land by MK Alagiri Educational Trust for Dhaya College of Engineering here on Friday.
At the farmers’ grievances day meeting conducted at the Collectorate here, Ramalingam made the representation to the Collector stating that the land in which a Ganesh temple is situated in Sivarakottai village (survey number 175/13) was encroached by Alagiri in his capacity as the founder president of MK Alagiri Educational Trust for the construction of the college.
According to the petition, the 44-cent land was sold to M K Alagiri’s trust by creating a forged document (121/2011) and that the land was registered at the Tirumangalam sub registrar office.
