organization's members met police commissionerShankar Bidari and
submitted a memorandum.

The organization claimed the government had sanctioned 47.9 acres to
dalits of Ambedkar Nagar in Pattana Agrahara. However, 3 acres, 20
guntas were withdrawn recently. Though the government promised to use
it for a local police station and panchayat building, it was leased to
a private builder to construct a commercial complex, they alleged.
