Karnal, June 10

A restaurant owner has alleged rampant corruption in local office of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA).
A team had razed illegal structures raised by the restaurant owner on HUDA land on Wednesday.
Talking to mediapersons here on Friday, Sunil Bindal, the restaurant owner, alleged that HUDA Executive Officer (EO) Anupama Sangwan had misled the higher authorities and Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on his encroachment issue.
However, Anupama refuted the allegations and accused Bindal of encroaching upon HUDA land for the past 12 years. She also denied involvement of any employee of her office in corruption.
Bindal admitted that the land belonged to HUDA and he had been using it for marriage purposes by paying rent for the past more than 10 years. The action was taken with mala fide intention as he did not bow down to illegal demand of HUDA officials, he alleged.
He alleged that the EO’s husband, who is an employee of Panipat thermal plant, and Bhim Singh, a field chowkidar with HUDA, had demanded money to settle the issue.
Refuting the involvement of her husband in her official work, Anupama said, “We have several evidence, including documents and photographs, to prove violation by the restaurant owner. We have served notices and adopted proper procedure to remove encroachment from the land which is reserved for a shopping complex.”
She said that Bindal was carrying out commercial activities on the land by paying a meager amount to HUDA. Moreover, he used to book a site and erected tents on other site also which was illegal, she said, added that a sum of Rs 5 crore was pending with the restaurant owner.
Meanwhile, Bhim Singh said that all allegations levelled against him were baseless.
