But, even as the case was pending in the court, the construction company officials taking advantage of the absence of occupants of the house and without any prior notice, barged into the land along with labourers and JCB, had felled six coconut trees, a mango tree and even damaged the compound wall. A complaint has been lodged in this connection at Malpe police station.

The complainant has also said that the authorities when contacted apologized for the folly and have also assured to bear the loss incurred.
