Hon'ble Pradeep Kant,J.
Hon'ble Surendra Vikram Singh Rathore,J.
The petition contains bald allegations. The parties, who are said to have encroached upon the Gaon Sabha land have also not been impleaded.
The writ petition, therefore, cannot be entertained. However, it is needless to reiterate that if any Gaon Sabha land, may be recorded as Talab, Banjar etc., is encroached upon by any person, it is the duty of the revenue officials to get that encroachment removed and restore the property to Gaon Sabha.
The petitioners' grievance in nutshell is that certain persons have occupied the Gaon Sabha land, allegedly the Talab, for which they rely upon the report of the Lekhpal.
Since the pleadings in the writ petition are absolutely vague and the matter requires evidence, we refrain ourselves from entertaining the writ petition, but dispose of the same with the direction that the District Magistrate shall look into the matter on a representation being made by the petitioners, and shall take necessary effective steps, if it is found that there is any encroachment on the Gaon Sabha land.
