KATTAPPANA: The Peerumade tahsildar on Wednesday attached a 10-acre property, owned in the name of one Malayali Club at Wagamon. The attachment was effected as per the order of the District Collector.
The club was in the land owned by the Tourism Department. The case began one-and-a-half years ago and the then Peerumade tahsildar, who enquired into a complaint of encroachment on government land, had submitted a report.
Later, as per the Collectors order, the Idukki Sub-Collector inquired into the case and found that the title deeds were bogus. Following this, the Collector had inspected the Peerumade taluk office and village offices in Elappara and Upputhara and found that the title deeds had been created by tampering with the official documents.
The parties who claim ownership of the land then moved the High Court.
