There is an illegal settlement in the cemetery

On the complaint of social activist Naresh Paras, in October, ACM Pancham Vijay Sharma, Waqf Board inspector Shyamdhar Gupta and the police team called for an investigation. When the investigation team checked the documents of the residents of the commune located in the cemetery, their heads were shocked. During interrogations, people said they were Muslims, but when the Aadhaar cards were checked, their names were mentioned as Hindus. ACM Pancham Vijay Sharma was investigating this but the investigation is still pending.

The municipality did not move even after the notice
Waqf Board Inspector Shyamdhar Gupta says that according to Waqf Board rules, only cemetery committee office can be set up in the cemetery. Apart from that, a gravedigger can live there. Other than that, there may not be any pucca constructions in the cemetery, but several dozen pucca houses have been built in the cemetery. There is also information about the life of a family that lives luxuriously. The Waqf Council had issued notices to the inhabitants of the basti, but the basti is still there.
