Kochi, May 16 : Congress-led Opposition United Democratic Front (UDF) on Thursday demanded a judicial probe into the alleged land filling at Kunnathunadu here.
Addressing a media conference, UDF Convenor Benny Behanan has demanded a comprehensive Judicial Probe into the alleged procedure of the government order allowing land mafia to fill in 15 acres of land at Kunnathunadu, in Ernakulam district.
The government should freeze it and order a judicial probe in this regard, he sand and demanded that the government should initiate a vigilance probe into such mafia land deals that had taken place during the past one year.
Mr Behanan also said that he would bring out all those big sharks, who had supported controversial businessman Faris Aboobucker to possess the precious lands illegally, which lay near the Infopark, Smart City and Kadambrayar.
The controversial 15 acre of land, which was still in the data bank, as it was not a land at the time of implementing the 2008 paddy and wetland law, he claimed.The hasty decision of issuing orders to fill the land by the official level, even without informing the Revenue Minister would invite suspicion in the order, he alleged.
