KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Nearly 5,000 acres of land was retaken from illegal grabbers in Kabul province during the past one year and the process is underway, Governor Mohammad Yaqub Haidari said on Monday.

Haidari said this while addressing a meeting which was attended by some government officials and district chiefs.

The governor said the purpose of the gathering was to ask district administrative chiefs to cooperate with the commission formed to return the grabbed lands of the state.

He said during former President Hamid Karzai’s government and in the beginning of the Unity Government, 43,000 acres of land was grabbed.

Most of the lands were grabbed in Chahar Asyab, Bagrami, Deh Sabz, Shakardar and Paghman districts of Kabul.

He added nearly 5,000 acres of the usurped land had been recovered. A new commission has been formed which would travel to different areas of Kabul to identify grabbed land with support of district administrative heads.

The governor said anyone involved in land grabs and their abettors would be punished in line with the law.

According to reports, 3,000 acres of vacant state land in Kabul City and 200,000 acres in different districts of Kabul exist and under threat of being usurped.
