Daily Times on Monday learnt that Adalat Hussain, son of Atta Muhammad, who has been living in United Kingdom for last 50 years, purchased 35 kanals and 8 marla of land in Pindmatay Khan on highway near Gujar Khan in 2004 from investment point of view. The land was transferred in his name vide transfer number 1647. In December 2010 when he came to know that some persons have grabbed his land, he came to Pakistan and visited his land. Raja Waheed, Raja Sajid, Raja Tariq, Raja Rafique and five other armed persons told him that MNAs Raja Muhammad Asad Khan and Raja Muhammad Safdar Khan owned the land and they were making a housing society there. They threatened him that he would be shot dead if he came back to the land.

Hussain said he possessed all documents, according to which he and his three sons Sajid Hussain, Abid Hussain and Babar Hussain owned Khasra numbers 307, 258, 76 and 75, but the MNAs, who are sons of former MNA Muhammad Afzal Khan, have grabbed his land.

Hussain said when he field an application with the police, Station House Office (SHO) Muhammad Nazar Khan and Investigation Officer Mehboob Shah, who is acting SHO, instead of registering a First Information Report (FIR) told him that they could not take any action against MNAs. Hussain said went to the DSP office but DSP sent him to Tehsildar and Tehsildar sent him to DDRO who also refused to take any action and advised him to file an application with the complaint cell and wait for his turn. Hussain said he also visited the Assistant Commissioner but he also advised him to sale out the land and go back to UK, as he could not stand against such influential persons. Husaain said after getting disappointed he also sent letters to Punjab Chief Minister Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, Chief Justice Lahore High Court Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry, IG Punjab Police, Punjab Governor and Revenue Officer to provide him justice.

Hussain said he was continuously getting threats from the MNAs and their third brother Raja Akhtar who were forcing him to sell the land to them at the same price which was in 2004 otherwise he would be shot dead. He appealed to Chief Justice of Pakistan to take a notice and provide him justice.

Hussain’s nephew Perviz Afzal said MNA Raja Asad and Malik Riaz were business partners. Raja Asad, also a member of Bahria Town committee, is using his influence to grab land for Malik, as housing societies are now moving towards Gujar Khan, he alleged. Daily Times contacted Malik Riaz to get his version but Mushtaq received the call and said Malik had gone to visit the site selected for a new housing society. Mushtaq said he will inform Malik and he would call back. Till filing of this report he did not call.
