LUDHIANA: Following an 8-year-long inquiry, division number 8 police have booked eight persons for allegedly forging documents of the revenue department to sell a property located in prime Ghumar Mandi.

The accused have been identified as Kashmiri Lal, his brother Badri Prasad, family members Munni, Soni, Vidya alias Baguli Devi, Somnath, Suresh and Veeru (all residents of Ghumar Mandi chowk). The case has been registered on the complaint of Vinod Kumar of Sarai Mohalla of Amritsar.

Vinod said his maternal grandfather Tek Chand owned a 250 sqft property at Ghumar Mandi chowk. After his death in 1979, the property’s ownership was divided among all his children. Vinod’s mother Chandravati got a share in the property. In 1995, his mother passed away.

“After her death, my mother’s brothers Kashmiti Lal, Badri Lal and other relatives hatched a conspiracy to grab the property. Without his knowledge, the accused forged documents of the revenue department to show the ownership of the property in their names, and her mother’s name was removed from it. The accused also managed to sell the property using forged documents,” he claimed.

As Vinod came to know about it, he filed a complaint with the city police on May 3, 2015. An inquiry was marked into the matter. The inquiry report said the accused forged revenue records and entries and illegally got mutation of property sanctioned in their favour.

ASI Satnam Singh from division number 8 police station said no accused has been arrested so far.
