Miscreants rampage orchards in Kunzar

BARAMULLA: Miscreants in Kunzar township of north Kashmir on Monday night rampaged through orchards and agricultural land using JCB machines to create a road.
The mischief was repeated five months after some unknown persons illegally tried to create and widen a nine kilometer long footway from Bongam to Chanpora through agricultural land.
Jammu and Kashmir High Court has already appointed Deputy Commissioner Baramulla as the enquiry officer to look into the nocturnal rampaging of the agricultural and orchard fields in Chanpora village by some persons of neighboring Bongam village.
A writ petition filed by affected farmers of Chanpora in High Court prompted the court to appoint Deputy Commissioner Baramulla as the enquiry officer on March 19, 2015. The court ordered him to submit a report within a month and to ensure a status quo was maintained till then.
Villagers said that on Monday night some persons yet again rampaged the fields and orchards in the brazen violation of Court orders.
“After they damaged our fields in October last for more than one month during nights, these miscreants have now again committed the violation. We feel very insecure as our properties have been damaged. No official is coming to our rescue,” said the residents.
Sub Divisional Magistrate Tangmarg, Abdul Qayoom said that he asked the concerned Tehsilar to look into the issue. “If need arises, I will also visit the area. No one will be allowed to violate high court orders,” he said.
