Surya Kant, J. (Oral)
The dispute pertaining to possession over a piece of land, which the petitioner, on the one hand, claims to be Zumla Mushtarka Malkan and the Gram Panchayat, on the other hand, asserts that it is vested in it under the provisions of the Punjab Village Common Lands Regulation Act, 1961, led the petitioner to file a petition under section 11 of the Punjab Village Common Lands Regulation Act, 1961 (in short the Act). The petitioner sought some ad-interim injunction in the said suit, which, having been declined, he filed CWP No.7562 of 2004, in which this Court vide an order dated 29.5.2004 has directed both the parties to maintain status quo with regard to possession.
Alleging that despite the said ad-interim order, the respondents forcibly harvested the crop sown by the petitioner, this contempt petition has been filed.
COCP No.802 of 2005 -: 2 :-
On a query by the Court, Learned Counsel for the petitioner states that the suit filed by the petitioner under section 11 of the Act has now ripened for final arguments.
Having regard to the seriously disputed issue as to who, out of the two contesting parties, is in actual physical possession of the subject land, it appears expedient and desirable to direct the Additional Deputy Commissioner (Development), Gurdaspur, before whom the above mentioned suit is pending, to dispose of the same as early as possible but not later than September 30, 2006. With these directions, this petition is disposed of.
August 22, 2006. [ Surya Kant ]
