Justice S Nagamuthu of the Madras High Court has ordered notice on a petition levelling allegations against the high officials of the revenue department in Vellore district and praying for a directrion to the CBI to investigate the allegations.

In his criminal original petition, K Navin Karunakaran of 15th Main Road in Anna Nagar submitted that he was in possession and peaceful enjoyment of 2.41 acres of land at Nilavur in Tiruppathur taluke, Vellore district, from September, 2006.

While so, an advocate D Thangaraj attempted to interfere with petitioner’s possession of the property.

Petitioner lodged a complaint with the inspector, Land-Grabbing Special Cell in Vellore and also filed a civil suit before the Distrtict Munsiff in Tiruppathur.

The legal heirs of Puttan Kali, who had since died, on the basis of false information and with a fraudulent intention, claimed ownership over the property of the petitioner.

Petitioner alleged that the revenue authorities, including the th-en sub-collectors Ha-neez Cha-bra, Lalitha Lakshmi and the then district revenue officer Sundaravalli colluded with the offenders.

As there was no progress on his complaint, as highly placed officials were involved in the case, petitinoer filed the present petition for a direction from the High Court to transfer the investigation on his complaint to the CBI.
