Whole Tamil Nadu feel happy with C.M. in arresting land grabbers like Attack Pandi.
After cracking down on land grabbers in Madurai, the police here are now gearing up book revenue officials who connived with them.
Soon, cases will be filed against the sub-registrars in the registration department who were hand in glove with the land grabbers, police sources said.
To start with, the police are zeroing in on some sub-registrars who are suspected to have helped V P Pandi (34) alias ‘Attack’ Pandi and his relatives to grab a prime property in Madurai.
“Some of the officials in the registration department are involved. We want to gather substantial evidence before initiating action against them,” said a senior police official.
On Friday [15-7-2911] , Pandi and two other associates were produced before a local court and remanded in judicial custody. The police have booked Pandi on several charges, including criminal intimidation, forgery and trespass. He was grilled by a team of police personnel on Thursday[14-7-2011] night in connection with several complaints against him. However, the police said Pandi was not cooperative during the inquiry and claimed innocence.
Pandi and his relatives Marimuthu (44) and Tiruchelvam (32), both of them DMK functionaries, were arrested based on a complaint filed by E Kalpana (42) from Chockikulam.
Kalpana alleged that the trio had grabbed her 900 sqft house on Palace Road opposite Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal. Kalpana had originally leased out the property to R K Balan in 2004, who in turn sub-leased it to Pandi’s cousin Marimuthu in 2006.
In turn, Marimuthu rented out the building to their relative Thiruselvam and his friend Chinnasamy. In 2009, Kalpana repaid the lease amount to Balan and asked him to vacate the building.
But Balan took up the matter with Pandi and, instead of vacating the property, demanded that Kalpana transfer the ownership to his relatives. Kalpana has now filed her complaint with Madurai Police and they have arrested Attack Pandi and his associates.
Selvi Jayalalithaa during her election campaign has promised the Madurai people, that she will remove the rowdies from Madurai and make the city as a spiritual and tourist center. Madurai people expecting the same from our Chief Minister and they are now very happy with the immediate actions taken by her.
