LAHORE  - The grandson of former Punjab governor late Mian Aminuddin yesterday said that some police officers were backing a gang of land grabbers to occupy his property worth millions of rupees.

Resident of Harbanspura, Ali Kuli Aminuddin, while addressing a news conference at the Lahore Press Club yesterday appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to take action against the police officers and the alleged land grabbers.

Ali Kuli said that he had soled out a piece of 57-kanal land located in Harbanspura to Muhammad Sajjad in Rs 36million but he paid only Rs 11million to him.

“Sajjad also issued us bank cheques worth Rs 25 million and promised to pay the remaining amount on time but he occupied our property at gunpoint and has refused to pay the pending amount”.

Ali Kuli further alleged that SP (Cantonment division) Imtiaz Sarwar and other police officers concerned including DSP North Cantonment were backing the land-grabbers. He said that the police officers refused to register cheques dishonour cases against the land-grabbers despite the fact that the bank declared the slips as bogus.

“They are threatening me and my family of dire consequences and if anything happens to us, the police officers and the land grabbers should be held accountable,” he said.

When contacted, SP Imtiaz Sarwar was not available for his comments.
