K. Xekiye village council and GBs has appealed to deputy commissioner, Dimapur, Maongwati Aier to issue immediate eviction order to “illegal encroachers” from K. Xekiye village.
In a letter addressed to DC, Head GB cum chairman, K. Xekiye, K. Xekiye Swu stated that the land in question originally belonged to the village but was relocated to Kakiho, head GB of Kakiho village. The village also claimed that a group of people from Jalukielo village under Peren district led by Asuzo Kezo were trying to migrate into the land.
The chairman highlighted that the government on report intervened and solved the problem by signing a bond by both the parties on November 19, 2010. However, he said the encroachers were gradually extending into their land by felling of plantation trees and constructing houses.
Based on right of landownership, K. Xekiye village submitted a representation addressed to Aqahuto Area GBS Union apprising them of the situation on February 8, 2011. Again on February 14, the chairman said SDO (civil), Dhansiripar and Jalukie along with their DBs and police personnel verified the spot and assured them that a favorable solution would be brought out within three to four days. Nevertheless, the chairman went on to add that no action has been taken so far.
In this regard, Western Sumi Kukami Hoho had submitted a complaint letter addressed to DC apprising of the situation on February 19, but no concrete initiatives were taken, added chairman.
K. Xekiye village has therefore requested DC Dimapur to issue an eviction order within seven days time from the date of publication of this notice. Failing which, he said action would be taken as per customary law and the responsibility fully borne by the government.
