DYFI workers destroy under-construction house in Kanhangad and plant flag
Kahangad: DYFI workers destroyed the foundation of a under-construction house and planted a flag on the site at Ittammal Chaliyam Nayil in Ajanur grama panchayat in Kahangad. The construction work of the house was going on with the permission of Ajanur panchayat ruled by CPM. V M Razik, brother of Muslim League activist Ashraf Kollavayal, was the owner of the house which was ransacked.
Razik was building house on 10 cents of land and the panchayat approved it on February 5. The construction work began on April 8.
Locals informed that a group of people had visited the place and removed stones the other day. The walls on the eastern side was destroyed and removed. The partially-built walls of a shed was also damaged. The pathway was also blocked with huge boulders. Razik is a fruit vendor in Kanhangad. Hosdurg police have booked a case based on a complaint from Razik.
It is a paddy land - DYFI
DYFI informed that the house was being constructed on a paddy field and is a water stagnant place. That is why we stopped the construction, said Kanhangad block president Vipin Kattadi. The native people are very concerned about this and have lodged a complaint to the panchayat. However, destroying the foundation of the house was not done by DYFI workers, Vipin told Mathrubhumi.
Land not in data bank - Panchayat
Ajanur Grama panchayat vice president and CPM leader K Sajeesh said that the land was not included in the data bank and approval was given as the owner had only 10 cents of land. He also added that further inspection will be conducted as a complaint has been lodged even by the DYFI.
