Covai Post Network

KOCHI: The Thrissur Vigilance Court on Monday criticised the DVAC officials for delay in registering an FIR on a complaint that actor Dileep’s D Cinemas of encroaching upon around one acre of poromboke land in Chalakkudy.

The court granted a week’s time for the officials to file the FIR.

The court asked the officials the reason for the delay in registering the FIR even though it ordered one to be registered on the matter and initiate investigation two weeks ago.

Apart from actor Dileep, former Thrissur Collector Jaya also has been made defendants in the complaint filed by social activist P.D. Joseph.

Though a preliminary probe was conducted on the basis of the complaint DVAC had taken a stand that the multiplex was not built on encroached land and dismissed allegations of unauthorised construction of the multiplex on the encroached land.

The Vigilance court dismissed the investigation report submitted by the DVAC that cleared D Cinemas of encroachment charges. It ordered the officials to file an FIR on the matter and initiate investigation.

The complainant approached the court again as no action was taken even after two weeks.
