Mistaken identity: Families complain against attachment notice in PFI assets confiscation procedures

Attachment notice, Ali and Salam

Malappuram: Two families from Malappuram- Puthanangadi lodged a complaint with the district collector against an attachment notice issued mistakenly amid the confiscation procedures of the assets of PFI leaders. The similarity in address has reportedly resulted in the error during attachment proceedings.

The complainants Ali and Salam informed that they have no links with the banned outfit Popular Front of India. Both of them were expatriates for years. Even on the day of the hartal, they were outside India, noted the complaint. The officials said that two other persons in the family of complainants were PFI leaders and the similarities of addresses and names between them have resulted in the legal proceedings against Ali and Salam.

Notices were issued for the 4 cents and 30 cents of lands of the two complainants. The officials examined the title deeds and survey numbers while going on with the legal procedures. Though the officials could understand the plight of the complainants, they were helpless to halt the proceedings progressing as per the court order.

Kerala government initiated attaching the properties of PFI leaders on Friday following the High Court criticising the state over the delay in complying with its earlier order.
