On the same day that the Kerala High Court rejected the bail plea by actor Dileep in the actor abduction and assault case, another complaint was registered against him by Karumalloor gram panchayat president alleging that the actor encroached on a puramboke land. 

The local body president GD Shiju in his complaint has said that the actor encroached 20 cents of land on the banks of Periyar river in the panchayat and got it registered in the name of his then wife Manju Warrier in 2005.  

The complaint has been sent to the Chief Minister, Revenue, PWD, and Water Resources Ministers and the Vigilance Director.

In his complaint, the panchayat president has alleged that there was a conspiracy in shifting a proposed regulator cum bridge 350 metres away from the proposed site, and that it was to help the real estate mafia there. 

He alleged that the sand mined from Periyar for the construction of the bridge was used to fill Dileep’s land. 

A bathing ghat and a protection wall were also constructed with government money near his land, for his benefit, says the complaint.

“The puramboke land encroached on by Dileep should be reclaimed as excess land and utilised for LIFE Mission, the government’s housing project for the poor,” Shiju said in the petition, The Hindu reports.

The actor has got two acres of land owned by him in the area and as per the complaint, he encroached 30 cents of puramboke land adjacent to his plot.

Shiju has alleged that the actor encroached the land with the help of revenue officials.  

Karumalloor village officials have reportedly said that they have sent a report to Parvur Tahsildar seeking a survey of the plot.

Meanwhile, protesting against the encroachment by the actor, CPI (M) local committee members placed their flags on the land.

This is not the first time that there has been a land encroachment allegation against Dileep, as his movie theatre D cinemas is also embroiled in it.
