The city police have booked a bank manger and two property dealers for allegedly selling a house that was constructed on prohibited area at Jyoti Park in Gurgaon.
According to the complaint filed by victim Ragini Goyal, the accused conspired to sell the property though they were aware that the house was constructed on Air Force land. “The dealers forged the documents and the bank manager also connived with the dealers. They misled me into purchasing the house,” she said.
The complaint named Sudarshan Kalra, the manager of Oriental Bank of Commerce, DLF branch, two property dealers Sunny Kalra and Inderpal Singh. Goyal, a resident of Dwarka, had initially filed the complaint with Gurgaon police commissioner KK Sindhu after she came to know the dubious legal status of the property.
According to the victim, she had paid Rs. 32 lakh for the property. She also sought a thorough investigation in the case. The registration of the property was done on the basis of forged papers, she alleged. “When I got wind of the fraud, I tried to call up the property dealers, but they refused to attend the calls.”
The commissioner later referred the case to the Economic Offences Wing. The accused are on the run and the police have conducted several raids to nab them.
Meanwhile, fraudulent property cases have been on the rise in the city. In February this year, the police had filed case against two bank officials and six others in a Rs. 44-lakh a fraud case.
