8 families evicted from Gole demand justice

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Oct 3: Eight families, which became victim of the eviction drive in Gole area of Jammu, have demanded justice from the concerned authorities.
These eight families, which claim to be in the possession of valid legal documents about the land from which they were evicted following orders from the Division Bench of State High Court, said that they should not be made victim for the illegalities committed by other persons in Gole area.
The representatives of these families led by Vishav Hindu Parishad leader Dr Ramakant Dubey, who visited EXCELSIOR office this evening, said “during the anti-encroachment drive, our point of view was not considered as such we demand that justice should be given to us by scrutinizing the legal documents in our possession”.
“District Administration as well as Jammu Development Authorities should sit together and see where was the confusion so that we don’t suffer for no fault of ours”, they said, adding “our only demand is that we should be given justice”.
The JDA authorities, when contacted, said that discussion can be held on the humanitarian basis to see how best these families can be accommodated keeping in view the fact that their claim could not be established during the extensive demarcation and verification drive conducted recently by Regional Director Land Records and Surveys. They said that since the matter is sub-judice only High Court can pass any order on Gole land.
