Land mafia is reportedly making attempts to grab 70 acres of Wakf land worth Rs 200 crore at Nunna village in Vijayawada rural mandal. In revenue records, the land is mentioned as Kondapalli Kazi’s Inam.
According to sources, some people got a sale deed for four acres of the total 74 acres, registered at the sub-registrar office at Kavali in Nellore district in 2007.
But it was cancelled on intervention by Krishna district minorities welfare officer. A criminal case was registered against those involved in the land registration by the Payakapuram police. However, they approached the High Court and got a favourable verdict.
Later, they approached the sub-registrar of Hayathnagar in Ranga Reddy district to get the registration done online.
However, Vijayawada RDO S Venkat Rao wrote to the Hayathnagar sub-registrar on August 23 this year asking him to stop the registration of the sale transaction following a request by the district minorities welfare officer. In his letter, the RDO stated that the land was classified as ‘inam dryland’.
