Highlights
  • The quick verification report states that the actor did not encroach the land
  • The report has been submitted to the state police chief and on approval sent to the court
  • The allegation is that Dileep does not possess proper documents to prove the ownership of the land

Revenue and survey officials have submitted a quick verification report with state police chief that Dileep did not encroach the land on which his theatre complex D Cinemaas is situated. The officials have sought DGPs permission to submit the report with the office of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau in Thrissur.

The Vigilance officials came to a conclusion after checking the documents. The court had asked the Vigilance to submit a quick verification report based on a complaint filed by activist P D Joseph. 

Meanwhile, there is a complaint that the encroachment occurred before the land was owned by the actor. A probe into this complaint is being conducted by the district collector. 

The complaint states that the land, in which D Cinemaas is situated, belonged to the Royal Palance and was later handed over to Devaswom Department. The person, who possessed the land prior to Dileep, encroached it and later sold tot he actor, the complaint states.

“The quick verification report was prepared on the basis of the information based on a survey conducted by revenue officials. It will be submitted to court once we get the nod of DGP. It is up to the court to accept or reject the report, Vigilance DySP said. 

However, the official also said that the actor does not have proper documents to prove that the whole 95 acres of land belong to him. Cochin Devaswom Board also has raised a claim that the temple land was encroached by the actor. Dileep does not have the Keezhadharam, previous documents, of the land, Joseph said. 

The Vigilance Court will consider the petition against the actor on September 27. The encroachment complaint was against former Thrissur District Collector M S Jaya and Dileep. 

The land encroachment complaint came up soon after Dileep got arrested in actress attack case on July 10.
