A civil court has constituted a court commission to draw panchnama (map) of the residential premises of Rajkot police commissioner HP Singh’s in Vastrapur after a complaint alleging illegal construction and encroachment was filed before it.
The court has asked staff of the Court Commission of the Ahmedabad district and rural court to go to the spot on Wednesday morning and draw the existing map of the premises in presence of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) officials.
The court was hearing a civil suit filed by a Harindar Pal Singh, a chartered accountant and neighbour of the senior IPS officer at Vardhman Bunglows near Alpha One mall in Vastrapur. Singh has named HP Singh’s wife Parminderjit Kaur in his complaint as the property is registered in her name. “We have received intimation from the court regarding the procedure of the court commissioner and will remain present at the resident on Wednesday morning,” said an official of the AMC on condition of anonymity.
The court has also issued notices to Singh’s wife and has posted matter for further hearing on November 8. The illegal construction is being carried on to accommodate an array of servants. Sources said that issue reached before the court as no action had been taken by the civic body against the IPS officer despite several complaints against him.
The suit also describes the nuisance caused by Kaur’s servants. Efforts to contact HP Singh on his official number failed as he was not available.
