Monday, 10 March 2014 | Prabha | PNS | Lucknow

Five people including Aam Admi Party’s lok Sabha candidate, Yogesh Dahiya, came in police scanner after the Saharanpur police registered FIRs against them in connection with a scam of Rs 300 crore in acquisition of the land from the farmers. The other named persons in the FIR included former Additional District Magistrate (ADM) and Assistant General Manager (AGM) of Gas Authority of India limited (GAIl).

Confirming the FIRs, SSP Saharanpur Dr Manoj Kumar said four cases each against the five people had been registered on a directive of the local Chief Judicial Magistrate under section 156(3) on a complaint filed by one Pahal Singh and three others. The FIRs were registered at Sadar Bazar police station, in Saharanpur district under IPC sections 420, 567, 468, 470, 471 and 120(B).

The petitioners had alleged that Dahiya, who is the AAP lok Sabha candidate from Saharanpur seat, along with the then ADM Randhir Singh Chauhan and GAIl AGM K P Singh while acquiring the land for the GAIl pipeline had siphoned off over Rs 300 crore by not paying the adequate compensation to the farmers.
