Okara: AMP warns police against registering false cases
OKARA: The Anjumn-i-Mazareen Pakistan (AMP) Kulana Estate president has threatened that they will not allow police to enter seven villages of the estate and its extensions if it continued registering false cases against AMP leaders.
At a press conference at the local press club on Tuesday, estate president Malik Saleem Jhakkar stressed that they had the right to cultivate the lands they occupied recently because their forefathers had been cultivating the same since 1913.
He said AMP tenants had taken retired Subedar Barkat’s lands into their possession and fodder had been cultivated there. He said Subedar Barkat had promised around three months ago that after the sugar cane crop, he would hand over two squares (50 acres) of lands to tenants but he refused, so they occupied these lands. He said Subedar Barkat had got a false case registered against them.
Jhakkar said the murder case against AMP Secretary-General Mehr Abdul Sattar and accomplices was false and that would react strongly in case the accused were arrested.
However, he said they would negotiate with the district coordination officer and other revenue officials on Wednesday (today) to resolve the issue.
