Pattan land owners aghast over delay in compensation

Baramulla: The land acquired by authorities eight years back for college premises in north Kashmir’s Pattan in Baramulla district has angered land owners for non payment of compensation by state government.
Land owners alleged that they were forced to run from pillar to post by state government in order to get compensation.”Now time has come when government has to return land back to owners as we can’t wait further,” one of the land owners said.
Land owners said the price of land, which was acquired eight years back, is now quadrupled.
