Supreme Court To Examine Validity of 3,000 Acres of Land Acquisition in Haryana's Rohtak District

The Supreme Court today decided to examine the validity of the acquisition of 3,000 acres of land in Rohtak district of Haryana.

A bench headed by Justice J M Panchal has issued notices to the respondents including state of Haryana on a petition filed by Mr Ramesh Dalal, an advocate and president of Bharat Bhumi Bachao Sansh Samiti.

The petitioner has sought directions to quash the notifications under Sections 4 and 6 of the Land Acquisition Act issued by the state of Haryana on January 15, 2010 and January 10, 2011 for development of an IMT township in Rohtak, the hometown of the Chief Minister B S Hooda.

The petitioner has also urged the apex court not to permit Haryana government further acquisition of land without permission.

The petitioner has also alleged that there is a nexus between the state government and the land grabber and has also informed the court that the petitioner had written letter dated 23 May, 2011 to Chief Minister Haryana, Chief Secretary Haryana, and Deputy Commissioner, Rohtak seeking a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the matter.

The petitioner had also demanded investigation into the killing of the ex-sarpanch of a village Manoj and the murder of his alleged killer Neeraj in a fake encounter by the state police.

The petitioner has also cited the findings of Punjab and Haryana government in DLF case holding that there is unholy nexus between the state government and builder and all subsequent actions of the government were to legalise the illegal allotment of land for SEZ purposes.
