Submitted by Subeditor on Mon, 2016-01-25 15:34 Bengaluru: Social Justice Forum, a social organization based in Bengaluru, on Monday alleged that the State Government and its officials are supporting the land mafia to illegally possess the lands of others by forging the documents. Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Njeeb M A, President, Social Justice Forum said that, though they have proper legal documents and rights of the land, a few land mafias and local goons have been trying to seize hold of the land by producing forged documents . "we have been living in Bangalore for over fifty years. Since our family roots are in Bangalore, we planned to settle down here in the city and purchased land in different parts of Bangalore. Though we have legal rights and documents of the sites duly registered, a few land mafia and local goons with the support of few politicians slowly grabbed the possession of our land illegally.” Najeeb said. “The victims of this government sponsored crime are lower middle class people who invested their hard-earned money for purchasing the land. But the local mafia set aside everything with their muscle power and stopped our entry to the site,” he alleged.
