TAMBARAM: Residents of Panayur in Sholinganallur off the East Coast Road staged a protest on Sunday accusing a real estate company of trying to take over the cultivable land belonging to a family.

The residents allegedly prevented workers engaged by the company to build a compound wall.

The staff of the company and its advocate, however, dismissed the allegation. The company was in possession of the land and the protest was instigated by a section that wanted more money, the advocate said.
