Admn orders probe into Swargadwar land grab

.........PURI:District Collector Arabind Agarwal on Wednesday ordered a probe into Swargadwar cremation ground land grab case. If required, criminal as well as civil cases would be initiated against the grabbers, informed the Collector to mediapersons. In 2011, Jagannath Bastia, member of a coastal protection body, had filed a complaint with the Board of Revenue that unscrupulous persons in connivance with the then revenue officials had grabbed over 10 acres of cremation land while 16.4 acres of land stood recorded in favour of Lord Jagannath. Following the complaint, the then Member of Board of Revenue and the RDC had ordered a probe into the issue. The Tehsildar and the revenue authorities had conducted an inquiry and later Vigilance department also investigated into the land scam. Though reports were submitted, no action was taken against the land grabbers even after six years. The Collector said development plan of Swargadwar cremation ground has been approved by the State Government. Over `90 crore has been allocated for acquisition of land to create facilities. If the land title found defective, the compensation money of the land will go into the account of Jagannath temple as it is the actual owner of the entire cremation land, he added.
