According to The Hindu, Yash and his family members had purchased about 80 acres of farmland in Thimmalapura two years ago. The family visited the site on Monday morning to construct a compound wall around the farmland.

Once the local residents realised that the compound wall was bing constructed, they allegedly tried to halt the work and picked up an argument with the family members over encroachment issues, The Hindu stated.

“The residents are alleging that Yash’s family is encroaching upon their land, while the family claimed that they were constructing on a land which connects to the Kalabhairaveshwara temple behind the actor’s farm land,” she added.


The News Minute stated that both parties have lodged a complaint and a counter-complaint in this regard and investigations are in progress regarding this matter.

The report in The Hindu quoted Yash telling media persons that the road was being built for a temple nearby.

“The road is not for my farm, but for a temple nearby. We wanted to put up a compound wall, so that entry of outsiders could be stopped. If there are any differences, they can be resolved through talks,” he said.
