Man sells land to three different buyers
Police arrested one person on Tuesday for forging the documents to sell a four-acre land to three people that belonged to a woman of Mauli village in Panchkula.
According to police they arrested Balwinder Singh, a resident of Dera Bassi, for selling the land that belonged to Mamta Devi, to three persons without her knowledge. Police officials said that the four-acre agriculture land was shown by Singh to them to be his own land and he also received the money from them.
However when the people to whom the land was sold came to take over the possession of the land they found that the land belonged to somebody else. Interestingly the accused after selling the land to one person later re-sold the same land to another person and then to a third person who were from Chandigarh and Mauli village.
Police officials investigating the case said that Balwinder Singh had also forged the documents claiming that he owned the land. However the people who were duped approached the police which has registered the case under Sections 406,420 and 120-B of the IPC.
Officials said that the land cost no less than Rs 3-4 crore. They said that they are also probing the role of local government officials in the case.
