Kiritbhai Manibhai Patel, a 63-year-old resident of Jetalpur area of Vadodara city, said in his complaint that there was ancestral land with different survey numbers at Tarsali village. Jitendra Gordhanbhai Patel, grandson of Motabapa Chitabhai Patel, had filed a suit in the court stating that he owned 1 of the land in Survey No. 38. The Court allowed the plaintiff to file a counter claim against the claim. During the year 2013, Jitendra Patel broke the fencing wire around the disputed land and started pucca construction in the land and put up a board showing a public notice that he was in possession of the land.
As the case was pending in the court, the court dismissed Jitendra Patel's suit and ruled in favor of the respondent.

The same was submitted to the Collector for action under the Land Grabbing Act. Meanwhile, a complaint was lodged at Makarpura police station and police have registered a case.
