Jammu, Oct 2 (UNI) Police today foiled an attempt to grab land and arrested three people in this connection from the Bhatindi area of Jammu and Kashmir.
The people who had forcibly barged into the house of one Rashid Wani, a Junior Engineer, in a bid to grab two kanals of a plot adjoining his house have been arrested, the police said.
Around five land grabbers had entered Wani's house and pelted stones, which forced him to open fire in the air, SP(south) Zahid Manhas told UNI.
He added that the police and civil administration staff reached the spot and three of them were arrested.
Police, however, said the land was adjoining Rashid Wani's house but the real owner of the land was yet to be confirmed.
A case under trespassing, property damage and attack, has been registered against those arrested.
