Au­rangabad, Jan 13: The de­scen­dants of Nawab Sir Mir Os­man Ali Khan Ba­hadur, the seventh and last Nizam of the princely state of Hyderabad, urged the gov­ern­ment to­day to hand over 277 acres of land in the city, which they claimed be­longed to the royal fam­ily.

Nawab Na­jaf Ali Khan, grand­son of Nizam VII, while talk­ing to re­porters here said that he has urged the district col­lec­tor to in­clude his and his fam­ily mem­bers' name in the prop­er­ties and give their phys­i­cal pos­ses­sion or pro­vide com­pen­sa­tion.

“On Jan­uary 25, 1950, Sir Os­man Ali Khan had sub­mit­ted the list of all his im­mov­able prop­er­ties as per the agree­ment be­tween the

Cen­tral gov­ern­ment and Nizams. We, his heirs, have all le­gal, law­ful rights to share the prop­er­ties in the name of our grand­fa­ther, Nizam VII," he said.

Cur­rently, there are sev­eral gov­ern­ment of­fices and other prop­er­ties op­er­at­ing from th­ese lands.

Re­ply­ing to a ques­tion, he said that 277 acres land in­cludes 160 acres in Hi­mayat Bagh area and 94 acres in Ahmed­bagh.
