10 jamabandis starting from 1952, and the current khasra girdawri register had been tampered with.
In the jamabandi of 1952-53, new pages that looked like old, yellowing ones were inserted, but the ink on them was darker. Each of the pages bore forged signatures of a qanungo, and the handwriting on them failed to match that on the other pages.
It seemed that the stitching of the jamabandi was opened, and the book was restitched after the new pages were inserted, says the report. In the later jamabandis, the alleged land-grabbers seemingly mixed up the serial numbers of the pages, leading to overwriting and cutting on all pages.
The alleged grabbers also mixed up the khewat and khatauni numbers, the report says.
