AURANGABAD: The Satara police have booked a city-based businessman for allegedly selling a piece of land admeasuring four gunthas located at a prime location in the outskirts of Satara to a Jalna businessman by forging documents of the land.

The police said that businessman, a resident of Rokda Hanuman Colony, is suspected of selling the same piece of land through bond papers and forged documents to other people as well.

AD Kachmande, investigating officer and sub-inspector of Satara police, said, “Rajkumar Gopichand Chetani, a Jalna-based businessman, had purchased a piece of agricultural land in Satara area a few years ago.”

Sources said that the land has a current market value of Rs 50-70 lakh.

In his complaint to the police, Chetani stated that he had not visited the land in recent times, but off late he came to know that some people are taking possession of it. Hence, he visited the land only to learn that it has already been sold to other people through forged documents, Kachmande said.

The police said that with increase in the city’s population, the areas on the outskirts of the city, including Satara, has gained prominence. The demand for land in the area has shot up, due to which most of the cases of cheating are being reported from Satara, the police said.

The police said that they are yet to arrest the suspect and will initiate action against him after going through the documents produced by the complainant.
