Milimani High Court at Lavington

A civil lawsuit before the Milimani High Court is centred on a plot of land in Lavington that led to the detention of an elderly couple, according to the judiciary.

According to a statement from the Judiciary, Mahesh and Anita Bhatti sued Malkiat Singh Assi and Munir Ahmed Chowdhary earlier this year, and the issue is still waiting in court despite assurances of a just resolution.

A popular online video catalyzed the entire situation. The old guy was being arrested by the police in the video released by Kileleshwa MCA Robert Alai, who said they were transporting him to the DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road.

The law enforcement officials said they did not require a warrant to make the man's detention when probed by the man's relatives.

The Judiciary claimed that petitions stating that the petitioners have jointly obtained the land title and ownership were contained in the complaints.

Additionally, they asked that the petitioners be registered as joint owners of the property by the Chief Land Registrar, Ministry of Lands.

According to the judiciary, until a court decision is reached, the person being accused and employees are not permitted access to the property.

The judiciary said that no request for an injunction or application had been filed in response to the problem. The government's arm also stated that the matter will be brought up on September 18.

This occurs a day after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations spoke out in defence of the family allegedly involved in the land grab effort.

According to a letter made public by the DCI, the Bahti family, who are the subject of the investigation, did not give the detectives any ownership records about the property dispute.

The suspect also appeared in public to clarify the situation. Anita Bhati and Baldev Sing Bhati were detained on Saturday in Lavington, Nairobi County, for alleged land appropriation.

The half-acre site is allegedly owned by Munir Ahmed and the late Malkit Singh, who possess a certificate of ownership dated December 1, 1971, according to Bashir Abdi Rahman, who also claims to be the agent and holds the power of attorney.

On August 15, 1988, a half-acre of land was sold to the Bhatti family, according to the identical document.

According to legend, the two families' land dispute allegedly started on February 28. Numerous trips to the police station and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations were prompted by the altercation.

Mr and Mrs Bhatti, the perpetrators, were freed from police detention after posting monetary bail of 50,000 shillings each. On Monday, the two are anticipated in court.
