Lucky Ali in Legal Trouble! ‘O Sanam’ Singer Files Complaint Over Alleged Land Grabbing By A Senior IAS Officer
Popular singer Lucky Ali, aged 58, has reignited a long-standing property dispute by filing a fresh complaint with the Karnataka Lokayukta. His complaint accuses a Karnataka IAS officer, her husband, her brother-in-law, along with police and revenue officials, of land grabbing and dereliction of duty. This dispute involves the realtor family of the husband of the IAS officer. Lucky Ali made the complaint public by posting an acknowledgment on his X handle (formerly Twitter). In his post, he described the situation as "land grabbing by an IAS officer and her husband and political brother-in-law through lots of money exchange."

This civil dispute has a history of making headlines. On December 5, 2022, Lucky Ali had previously alleged that the IAS officer was involved in land grabbing. The conflict primarily centers on the property near Kenchenahalli in Yelahanka, north-east Bengaluru. Lucky Ali claims that his property is being encroached upon illegally with the assistance of the IAS officer, Rohini Sindhuri. He appealed to the Karnataka Director General of Police to halt the illegal activity.

Despite these allegations, Rohini Sindhuri has maintained that the dispute has nothing to do with her. She stated in 2022, "He is just trying to throw mud at me," emphasizing that an injunction had been issued in 2016 against Lucky Ali, preventing him from interfering with the possession of the property. Her brother-in-law, Madhusudhan Reddy, asserts that he purchased the property in 2012 from Lucky Ali's brother, Mansoor Ali, and has all the necessary documents to support his claim.

The contested land dates back to 1969, acquired by Lucky Ali's father, the renowned comedian Mehmood Ali, who passed away in 2004. The land, spanning over 150 acres, was divided among Mehmood's six children through trusts set up when they were minors. Legal battles over the property began in the 1990s as the Ali children reached adulthood. These disputes often involved conflicts with third-party real estate developers.

A significant aspect of this saga involves the alleged sale of the entire parcel of land to two realtors in 1991 by S Raghunath, a General Power of Attorney holder for the family. Court records indicate that the Ali family members, including Lucky Ali (also known as Maqsood Ali), initially contested the sale but later reached a compromise in 2008. This agreement resulted in the realtors returning certain portions of the land to the family, including trusts named after Maqsood (Lucky) and his brother Maqdoom.

Under the compromise, conveyance deeds were executed in favor of the Ali family members and third parties like Sudhir Reddy's family. These deeds were formalized in 2011 by the realtors who had bought the property in 1991. Lucky Ali’s current complaint highlights the ongoing tensions and complexities surrounding the land, which remains entangled in legal and personal conflicts, demonstrating the protracted nature of property disputes within prominent families.
