“Consequent upon the written complaint received from the then Secretary Waqf Board, wherein the complainant alleged that the land measuring 6.6 Kanals, situated at Rangpora Zakoora of Wakf Board, was shown alienated in favour of Ishtaq Ahmad Ashai by way of fabricating Order No. 360-64 Dated 05.08.2003,” the statement reads.
