BIDAR: The principal and district session judge sent a warrant of attachment to seize property of the Veterinary University of Karnataka for failing to pay land compensation to farmers, who gave up their land for construction of the university’s building, as per the market rate.
The Special Land Acquisition Officer (SLAO) had acquired the land from Ayaspur villagers for the construction of a Veterinary University building in 2006. The university deposited the amount that was fixed by the land acquisition officer. But some land owners claim that the auction amount set on the property was lesser the prevailing market value.
“The principal senior Civil Judge had passed the order on the petitions filed on 23-4-2011 that all the petitioners are entitled for compensation of `7,71,500 per acre, with all statutory benefits. Earlier, the LAO suggested `1,30,000 per acre,” said VC Suresh Honnappagol. University’s goods worth `2.34 lakh were seized.;
