A houseboat owner, Mohammad Sultan told media persons that he and many other houseboat owners are suffering a horrifying situation for the last one month. These people try to give an impression of ghosts. They make horrible sounds and those who dare to confront them, face consequences.
“The only motive behind the harassment is that they want to create panic among the locals so that their wrongdoings remain unexposed,” Mohammad added as quoted in reports
The inhabitants also alleged that these Mafia people have hired goons to quell any resistance from people. These people are openly stealing sand which causes a huge loss to the state exchequer as it is deprived of royalty.
“It was around 5:30 am, I went out for ablution but the moment I stepped out I was attacked and abused by these goons. Trust me, we cannot move outside our houses till 8 am in the morning,” said another local.
