6 20.12.2010 After hearing the parties, we find that there is

dispute over the land between the petitioner and some other on

one hand and respondent No.6 on the other. From the

pleadings in the writ petition particularly in Paragraph 4(iii) as

well as from the Amin’s report, Annexure- B to the counter

affidavit filed on behalf of the State, it is clear that the land

over which road is being claimed by the petitioner is Raiyati

land. According to petitioner, the Raiyats by agreement gave

up part of their private lands for purpose of a road but

respondent No.6 has now obstructed that road by creating

gate and a wall.


In our view, the dispute lacks elements of public

interest and is fit to be settled between the parties before an

appropriate court. The writ petition is, accordingly, disposed
