CIAA Initiates Corruption Case Against 249 Individuals in Tikapur Land Scam

In a significant move, the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) has filed a corruption case against 249 individuals allegedly involved in the Tikapur City Development Committee land scam. Former chairs of the committee, including Netra Prasad Joshi, Lalit Tamrakar, and Dhijraj Regmi, are among those named in the charge sheet submitted to the Special Court on Thursday.

The accusations revolve around the fraudulent sale of land owned by the development committee through the production of counterfeit receipts. It has been unveiled that the land in Tikapur-9 was unlawfully plotted and subsequently sold with malicious intent. The CIAA has pointed fingers at former chairs, officials, and employees, alleging their complicity in the illicit activities.

According to the charge sheet, the perpetration of the scam involved the fabrication of documents to transfer land ownership to individuals, flouting the provisions outlined in the Town Development Act of 1988 and the Urban Development Directive of 2004.

This development underscores the ongoing efforts to combat corruption and uphold the rule of law, emphasizing the importance of accountability in governance structures. The case is poised to undergo thorough investigation and legal proceedings, marking a significant stride towards combating corruption in the country.
