Police have initiated an enquiry into an alleged forgery case against Indian Premier League commissioner and BCCI Vice President Lalit Modi with two others in the Nagaur city in Rajasthan.
According to Nagaur police station's Station House Officer (SHO) Sunil Prasad Sharma, one Rupa Raj Jat has filed a complaint against Rajasthan Cricket Association President Modi, Nagaur Cricket Association Secretary Rajender Singh Natu and the-then sub-Registrar.
The complainant has claimed that to become RCA President Modi had purchased a piece of land in September 2004 in order to show his residency in the city.
However, the registry of the purchased land carried fake signatures of Modi as he was not present in the city when the registry was done.
Modi had purchased the land with the help of Natu and prepared fake documents for the purpose.
Sharma said police have registered a case under IPC sections 420, 467, 468, 471 and 120 B and have initiated an enquiry into the allegations.
Former BCCI treasurer Kishore Rungta had also claimed on Tuesday that Modi misused RCA funds.
