New Delhi: In the latest development in the land allotment case in Karnataka, industrialist Alam Pasha, who has lodged complaint of fraud against former Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurppa and Industry Minister Murugesh Nirani has alleged that there is a danger to his life.

Pasha has claimed, he is continuously getting threatening calls and is being pressurized to take back the complaints. In this regard, he has even met BJP national secretary Shyam Jaju and apprised him about the issue.

Pasha had alleged that Yeddyurppa and Murugesh Nirani through forged signature had grabbed 26 acre of land which was allotted to him by the government.

In order to check the cause of the delay in the allotment of his land, when Pasha reached Karnataka Industrial Development Board’s office, to his surprise he found that someone had forged his signature on the form requesting for the cancelation of the allotment. Hence, his allotment was cancelled.

Thereafter, he lodged a complaint with the Karnataka Lokayukta against the then Chief Minister and Industry Minister as they were the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Karnataka Udyog, Mitra respectively.

Lokayukta has issued notices to the two accused in the fraud case and has sought replies in four weeks.

Pasha, has however expressed that the participants of the Global Investor Meet may also be part of the fraud.

Alam Pasha’s company Pasha Space International Private Ltd last year had proposed to build 600 houses for the economically weaker people. Yeddyurppa government by approving the proposal had allotted 26 acre land near Devanahalli International Airport.
