DIPHU, Aug 29 - The People for People (PFP), a Diphu-based organisation has demanded eviction of people occupying land illegally in the Diphu Police Reserve.
The general secretary of the organisation Gulson Bey, through a press release, stated that the land allotted to the Assam Home department for accommodating the police reserve by the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) has been illegally occupied by a section of people. Hence, the KAAC should take legal action against the encroachers of the government land and retrieve the occupied land.
Bey said that it is quite disturbing to notice that anyone can occupy such government land and if it is allowed to continue, it will send a wrong message to the people.
�Therefore, legal action must be initiated so that the Police department gets the encroached land back. Since Karbi Anglong is under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution, all land belongs to the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC). It is the duty of the KAAC authority to reclaim the illegally-occupied land and not remain a mute spectator,� the organisation�s release mentioned.
