As per the reports, the Vigilance Court had asked the VACB to register a case based on a petition filed in 2016, in which the petitioner has alleged that Jayasurya with the help of three former Kochi Municipal Corporation officials has encroached 3.7 cents of puramboke land. And as per the petitioner, the actor has constructed a boat jetty and compound wall for his house, on the banks of the backwater, violating building rules and Coastal Regulation Zone rules.
Jayasurya reportedly bought the 11.425 cents property beside Chilavannur lake in 2007 and constructed his house, and as per the petitioner the compound wall and boat jetty stand on the encroached land.
