Ahmad Ojla, Usman Ojla, and Hassan Ojla made a bargain with some peasants to get a certain sum in exchange for the peasants giving them possession of the land for their housing society. They began construction work on the property without paying the landowners the promised fee. After a while, Ojlas had the land converted to their titles, allegedly with the help of revenue patwaris.
Peasants complained against the society’s owners several times, often to no avail. Hundreds of peasants were demonstrating outside the housing society owners’ office on Tuesday when the owners began beating them.
