According to the FIR, the management of SMCHS, in collusion with Muzamil Amin Darzi, the plot’s owner/attorney, issued letters in 2006-07 for the allocation of 264 square yards of additional land (meant for amenity/service road) and forwarded the matter to the MPGO for conversion of land use from residential to commercial for 1,044 square yards without proper title documents for the plot (sub-lease of plot was only for 780 square yards).
“As a result of this increase, Mukhtiarkar Jamshed Town Khair Mohammed Dahri maintained illegal entry,” the statement stated.
According to the FIR, an additional 77 square yards of land was permitted in 2010 and the matter was sent to the MPGO for conversion from residential to commercial use for 1,121 square yards.
