STATE TIMES NEWS
JAMMU: In a stunning disclosure, the management of a Shiv Mandir in the outskirts of Jammu has allegedly ‘disposed of’ 17.10 kanal prime temple land for just Rs 30 lakhs, evoking huge public outrage.
According to a ‘mutual agreement’ deed, accessed by STATE TIMES, authenticity of which however cannot be vouched, Charak Welfare Society of Shiv Mandir Sunjwan, with its head office at Lane No 7, Greater Kailash, Jammu, has agreed to part with the temple land in lieu of paltry amount.
Believe locals, the obtaining market value of the land is between Rs 20 to 30 crore. It appears that the management surrendered the temple interests and did not counter the unauthorized possession of the ‘occupant’, as mentioned in the agreement. Such has been the approach of the management that it did not insist for the ‘meager payment’ to be made in one go but agreed to installments.
