Direction sought to investigate case against Thambidurai

Press Trust of India  |  Chennai 

Petitioner N Mohan submitted he has power of attorney for his wife and two others, who own 65 cents of vacant land in Paruthipattu village near here.

The land originally belonged to her grandfather who died in 1946.

He alleged that in April 2008, some officials of a private educational institution owned by Thambidurai visited the land adjacent to its premises and tried to forced him to sell it.

Mohan said he had a meeting with Thambidurai and declined to sell it.

In June 2010, some persons from the institution again trespassed into the property and dismantled the fencing and erected a compound wall, Mohan alleged.

He said when he tried to get an encumbrance certificate, he came to know that the property had been grabbed in the name of the institution by six persons, including Thambidurai.

He also alleged two of the six persons approached the legal heirs of the grandfather's brother and persuaded them to set up fictitious sale of the property and later gifted it to Thambidurai's wife.

After Mohan lodged a complaint before the Commissioner of Police on July 31, 2012,the duo admitted to grabbing the land during questioning, Mohan claimed.

Though Assistant Commissioner of Police, Avadi,initiated a detailed enquiry, no case has been registered, he said.

When the case came up for hearing today, the Public Prosecutor took notice and sought time to take instructions.

Justice A Arumughaswamy posted the matter for hearing after two weeks.
