The revenue officials had destroyed all unauthorized buildings that were constructed in Raidurgam in Ranga Reddy district. They had seized Tollywood actor Prabhas’ guest house built in 2,083-square yard land in Survey No. 5/3 at Raidurg Pan Maktha of Serlingampally and attached a notice on the gate after they did not notice anyone staying there.
Baahubali famous actor Prabhas has suffered a setback with the Telangana High Court finding mistake with a lower court’s interim orders, which left him temporary possession of a property, which the government says it owns.
But Prabhas had sought an order from the court stating the officials’ action ‘unlawful and illegal,’ claiming that they had decided to dispossess him without notifying him in advance.
He had claimed that he had purchased the land from B Vaishnavi Reddy in October 2005 and B Shashank Reddy in April 2006 through two registered sale deeds. He had applied for the regularisation of the area twice.
Prabhas had said that he had again applied for the regularisation of the land by clearing the necessary fee of Rs 1.5 crore on January 19, 2015. He had also said that he had been paying property tax and electricity bills regularly.
The court had stated that the land was part of the property once owned by the Paigah family, and it had ordered that his plea should be heard before the unique division bench.
After the title dispute was changed, the trial court at Kukatpally gave an interim injunction in favour of Prabhas till April 3.
Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, all interim orders were increased until the first week of June. The revenue officials filed a petition to vacate the order. When the plea was not heard, the government proposed the High Court.
The division bench noted that the order of the trial court was a blunder, and possession of the property should not be with Prabhas. Hence, the bench led the revenue authorities not to destroy the property. It directed the trial court to deal with the vacate request of the government and dispose of the case quickly on merits.
