Singer Lucky Ali moves Karnataka Lokayukta over alleged land grabbing by IAS officer

Singer Maqsood M Ali popularly known as Lucky Ali has approached the Karnataka Lokayukta against an IAS officer over land grabbing allegations.

Ali alleged that officer Rohini Sindhuri, her husband Sudhir Reddy and her brother-in-law Madhusudhan Reddy used state machinery and monetary power to illegally encroach on land that rightfully belongs to her family. The complaint also names Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath and a government official Manohar, according to a copy of the complaint that Ali shared on social media.

Ali first raised the allegations of land grabbing in December 2022 in a letter to the Karnataka police chief. He shared the content of his complaint on Facebook at the time.

Ali accused the Reddy brothers of invading his farm in Bengaluru with the help of officer Sindhuri. He accused the alleged land mafia of forcibly entering the Trust property located in Kenchenahalli Yelahanka and refusing to show the relevant documents. Even then, he slammed the trio for misusing state resources for their personal gain.

According to Ali, his family has owned the land for over 50 years.

In his letter to the DGP, Ali also claimed that he is not getting any help from the local police. Instead, he had accused local law enforcement of supporting the intruders.

Ali’s recent plea to the Lokayukta, which names Sindhuri, the Reddy brothers and policemen, suggests that he did not receive adequate assistance from the police.
