How a phone call from property dealer lifted veil off land fraud

Gurgaon: A man posed as the owner of a prime plot in Sushant Lok 1, who died five years ago, and transferred the property in the name of another man, who identified himself as the original land owner’s son. This was in 2019.
A year later in 2020, the plot, worth several crores, was sold to another person. Two months ago, the land measuring 968 square yards was up for sale again. This time, the property agent called up the son of the original landowner, Delhi resident Madan Lal Jain, and enquired about the property. The veil was then lifted off the property fraud.

Police said Jain had purchased the plot in 1994, and transferred all his properties to his son, Shital, in 2011. Three years later, he died of natural causes.

According to the police, in November 2019, a man named Sanjiv Jain walked into the tehsil office and identified himself as the son of the plot owner, Madan Lal Jain. The plot was transferred to Sanjiv with the help of forged documents and he sold to another person for Rs 4.6 crore a few months later.

On January 26, Shital received a call from a broker, who enquired about the property. He was shocked to know that the land had been sold once in 2020 without his knowledge and was up for sale again. “It seems to be the work of some organised gang. The role of revenue officials who executed the registry is also questionable,” Shital said.

On the basis of the complaint, a case has been registered under IPC sections 419 (cheating by personation), 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating), 471 (using forged documents) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) at Sector 29 police station against Sanjiv Jain, Dipu Gupta, who purchased the plot from him, and witnesses, advocate CL Arora, Bijender Singh and the register of Wazirabad tehsil and others. “We are trying to track the accused,” police spokesperson Subhash Boken said.
