Encroachment of government land

My neighbor has encroached on nearby unused government village road by placing mango trees on it. I have made written complaint to VAO,RDO etc. But VAO replied that there is no encroachment but only spikes and grasses were present in the mentioned in the road which is an outright lie.So I took photo of mango trees present for future use. what are my options? Can I file writ to clear the encroachment?

Yes, you can file a Writ before teh Honourable High Court by furnishing the evidences and seek a direction against the Panchayat/Municipal authorities to remove the trees

Whether plantation of mango tree on the road side is covered in the definition of "encraochment" ?

Just planting a mango tree need not amount to encrochment unless such an a aactivity is coupled with an intention to take possession of the public property.

sir, he has planted trees in the middle of the road as the road was unused for some years. Also he has started ploughing along with his adjacent land. Now the road does not look like road at all but agri land
