Delhi Police on Monday registered a fresh case against real estate agent Deepak Kumar, who has already been arrested, and sought clarification from the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) about how a flat not included in the scheme was allotted to an applicant.
The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) registered the case against Deepak Kumar, who allegedly blew the lid off the fraud after he fell out with a cartel of property dealers, for obtaining two PAN (permanent account number) cards in separate names.
"Deepak has two PAN cards - one in the name of Deepak Kumar and another in the name of Deepak Singh. But details and photograph are same in both,” said Additional Commissioner of Police (EOW) S.B.K. Singh.
“The cards were issued in his name in a short duration of time. We will request the court to extend his remand when we produce him in the court on Tuesday,” he added.
Four people, including retired DDA employee M.L. Gautam, have been arrested so far in the DDA flat allotment scam. The EOW is questioning 10 more people.
Asked about the allotment of a flat in east Delhi's Mayur Vihar area, which was not included in the housing scheme of 2008 but was allotted in the draw of lots held Dec 16, Singh said: “DDA has clarified that there were no irregularities in including the flat in this scheme.”
