CHENNAI: Police have arrested three persons involved in running an orphanage charging them with illegally occupying the property of another trust, which had originally given them permission to occupy the property for a limited period of time.

According to the police, Paul Emmanuel, 32, his wife Jyothi Blessing, 28, and Pradas, 65, were running an orphanage near Zonta Research Centre in Noothancherry, Madambakkam.

In November 2014, the three had pleaded with Kalpana Shanmugam, the Trustee of Zonta, accompanied by 15 children, to allow some space for them as their landlord had evicted them. Kalpana obliged and gave the children and the three running the orphanage two rooms on the promise that they would vacate the premises within a period of time.

However, according to the complaint from Kalpana Shanmugam on July 3 to the police, the three refused to move out after their time had elapsed and proceeded to take over an adjoining 45 cents of land and 5,000 sq ft of built up area.

The police investigating the case,arrested Emmanuel, Jyothi and Pradas on July 5. The three were remanded in custody.
