The actor's friend, Ghanshayam Lottey, who looks after his property, lodged a complaint at that time with the police. However, it took the police more than two years to crack the case.
Satinder Singh, senior superintendent of police (SSP, vigilance), Ludhiana, said a case had been registered against 12 persons on December 4. "Kapila and Jaswant were booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code, including 420, 467, 468 and 471," he said.
Satinder said Kapila's partner Jaswant was able to get the power of attorney by procuring fake documents and managed to get the land transferred in Kapila's name.
"We have got two-day remand of the accused. They will be questioned to find out who else were involved in the fraud," he added.
