The Tripura High Court has directed the CPI (M), BJP and Congress to file an affidavit disclosing details of public properties, in their unauthorised illegal possession in relation to which they are claiming title by way of adverse possession.
Taking a suo motu PIL, the bench of the chief justice Sanjay Karol and justice Arindam Lodh has also sought the details of all the cases either pending or disposed off, before different forums in this regard.
The court further asked secretary of the revenue department of Tripura government to file personnel affidavit giving details of such properties including the land or super structure which are in unauthorised/illegal occupation of the political parties.
The court order came after it noticed that in Bishalgarh Sub-division alone there are 24 such properties which are in the unauthorised/illegal possession of three of these political parties.
The court listed the matter for further hearing on November 25 next.
