It was also learnt that in compliance to this order the ACR Jammu directed the Tehsildar Bhalwal vide his letter dated 27.3.2018 to demarcate the whole land under Khasra no. 2471 at Kote and locate the area measuring 280 kanals in this Khasra number 2471 and directed that there shall be no activity/interference over the said land till the demarcation of the land under question is completed.
