Ranchi/Saraikela: A huge land scam came into light after Sairaikela DC ordered an enquiry into the alleged land scam in the district.
The scam came to fore after Chhavi Ranjan, on a lead, did a surprise inspection of the registration department, this Januaray. He found that 107 government plots were illegally registered in the name of private parties.
Ranjan has asked the SDM to investigate the matter and submit the report to him. The investigation revealed that the registration office knew about the prohibited accounts by 22 June 2015.
However, a tag team of land listener and the officials of the registry office lead to the scam.
The DC has asked to initiate legal action against Under Registrar, Subhash Kumar Dutta, Ujjawal Minj and Praful Kumar.
