Mohan Shah, a resident of Parsouni village, approached Soochna Sevaks to get his land back from a local goon. Shah contacted the team en route to Parsouni village outside the Parsouni Police Station. Initially, the team could not comprehend his problem but after a few dialogues they understood that the police was not helping him to sort out his problem. As he and his wife were thrown out of their house by hooligans sent by Asim Khan.
Komal Kumari, block coordinator of Soochna Seva, expressed her inability to solve his problem as such issues are beyond the framework of the project. But after repeated pleas of Mohan Shah, she phoned the Sub-Inspector (SI) and requested him to look into the matter.
The SI arrived at the spot with a few constables and inquired Mohan Shah about the incident. Shah told that he settled in Parsouni village 20 years ago and Asim Khan gave him a piece of encroached land to Mohan for Rs 20,000. A few months ago, Asim asked Shah to evacuate the land and take the money back. Mohan alleged that when he denied, Khan sent a couple of hooligans to throw his family out. Later, he wanted to lodge a complaint against Khan but the officials did not register the complaint. Hence, he sought assistance of Soochna Seva team.
Shah presented documents to SI to prove that he had given money to Khan. The SI inquired and found out that the land is a government land. According to encroachment law, anyone, who has been staying on a land for more than 20 years, is eligible to stay. Finally, his efforts brought fruitful result and the police assisted him to get his land back. Mohan thanked the Soochna Seva team for their help.
