NEW DELHI: Two men were arrested for allegedly duping a person of Rs 4.85 crore on the pretext of selling properties in south Delhi’s Chattarpur area, police said on Monday. The accused have been identified as Gunveen Singh (45) and his brother-in-law Jitin Pal Singh (40), they said.

Yogesh Tyagi, director of M/s Balaji Metropolis Pvt Ltd, alleged that one Gunveen Singh, along with Jitin Pal Singh and others, had introduced himself to be the holder of agreement to sell two properties in Chhattarpur and duped him of Rs 4.85 crore.

The complainant had alleged that Gunveen claimed the the property he was selling to him was free from all encumbrances, police said.

The sale agreement was executed in 2018. He paid Rs 2.80 crore to the accused. In August 2018, the complainant learnt that the property was disputed and a civil suit was already pending, following which he demanded his money back, a senior police officer said.

Thereafter, the alleged seller again approached him and informed that his amount can be adjusted against another property and offered the complainant to buy a plot in Ashoka Avenue, DLF Farms, Chhattarpur, police said.

Another sale agreement was executed by Gunveen for a total consideration of Rs 2.10 crore. The complainant paid Rs 2.05 crore to Gunveen Singh, Ajay Sahni and Ram Sahni, police said.

While receiving the payments, Ajay and Ram had assured that they are in process of getting the property mutated in their favour as the property was in the name of their deceased father. They also assured that they would execute the sale deed shortly, the officer said.

However, Ajay and Ram got issued a public notice in a newspaper where it was mentioned that they have not entered into any agreement to sell in respect of the property with anyone, police said.

There was also a family dispute due to which the property cannot be sold, which was deliberately hidden by them. Thus, it emerged that Gunveen Singh was not authorised to execute the ATS, whereas it was represented that he has the authorisation to do so, police said.

During investigation, Gunveen and Jitin were absconding and non bailable warrant issued against them. On Sunday, Gunveen and Jatin were nabbed from Gurgaon, Deputy Commissioner of Police (EOW) Vikram Porwal said.
