NEW DELHI - A man has been arrested for his involvement in grabbing a plot of land in west Delhi using forged documents, police said Saturday.
According to police, Surender Gahlot forged documents of properties whose owners were residing either in other cities or abroad.
“Gahlot’s accomplice Satender Singh, who is absconding, prepared a forged power of attorney in the name of an illiterate woman to grab the piece of land,” said the official.
The arrest followed investigations into a complaint filed by Ritu Tibarewal whose 1,000 square yard plot in west Delhi’s Mundaka, with a market value of crores of rupees, was grabbed by the accused by forging documents, said K.K. Vyas, deputy commissioner of police (economic offence wing).
The woman had purchased the land in 1987.
Satender Singh was also involved in cases of murder, possession of illegal arms, extortion and forgery, police said. They did not elaborate.
