Lahore – Lahore police Thursday retrieved property, donated by a citizen for the construction of a masjid and madrasa, from the illegal occupants. Ch Ikraamul Haq, a resident of Mason Road, and his sister Begum Akhtar Jalal had donated their land adjacent to Darbar Joay Shah Sanda for the construction of a masjid and madrasa around 12 years ago. Some land grabbers, after the death of Begum Akhtar Jalal, occupied the land. Ch Ikraamul Haq submitted a written complaint to CCPO Fayyaz Ahmad Dev for retrieval of the land.
SSP Discipline Ejaz Rashid, on the directions of the CCPO, held an inquiry. The illegal occupants failed to provide any authentic ownership papers of the land. Later, the Lahore police handed over the possession of the land to the citizen.
