A police operator had encroached upon four kanals of state land at Mohra with the help of some revenue officials, alleged Muneer Ahmad Malik, a local.
He alleged that when some locals objected to construction on the state land, some revenue officials told them that the land had been leased out to operator Zahir Nissar Mir, son of Nisar Ahmad Mir, against a payment of Rs 5 lakh.
"The revenue officials also produced some documents to vindicate their claims," alleged Malik, saying that smelling some conspiracy, locals brought the matter to the notice of SDM, Uri.
He said that on the receipt of complaint, the SDM reached the spot along with revenue officials.
"The SDM reached the spot along with revenue officials and records, wherein it was found that the land has been encroached," alleged Malik.
He claimed that though the SDM ordered on spot eviction of the encroached land, revenue officials intervened and sought two days time for the removal of tin sheds, which cop had illegally erected on the land.
The operator was also alleged to assaulted Malik and his son for bringing the matter to the SDM's notice.

"The moment I received complaint in this regard, I reached the spot along with revenue officials and records pertaining to the particular land, wherein it was clarified that the cop was attempting to encroach the land," SDM said and added that they stopped the construction work and ordered immediate removal of encroachment.
The SDM said the accused cop had sought two days for eviction. "We gave him two days for eviction, but in the meantime, he moved the court," the SDM informed.
