Two more arrested for bid to grab property

NEW DELHI: Days after a brazen attempt was made by some unidentified people to occupy the Vasant Kunj house of a doctor of Lady Hardinge Hospital who had been murdered, similar cases have been reported from the Yamuna Vihar area in northeast Delhi and Yusuf Sarai in south Delhi.
 
Dr Hemlata Gupta, who was killed in 2007 over an alleged property dispute, had no heir and her house was lying vacant for the past five years.
 
The modus operandi remains the same. A local property dealer pushes some middle-aged women with fake property documents into a house. When the hassled owner goes to the cops, these women play the victim. If the owner persists, the gang lodges fake cases against the owner.
 
The latest incident came to light on Friday when two persons were arrested.
 
The police said that P D Sharma, a retired teacher staying in Bulandshahr, was earlier working in a government school at Timarpur. In 1986, he bought land at Vijay Park near Ghonda. He built a house and gave it on rent. This tenant refused to pay rent and was evicted by Sharma after a prolonged legal battle. One Shakil Malik then became the new tenant but stopped paying the rent some months ago, said the cops.
 
"To Sharma's shock, Malik showed him a forged document and said he had bought the property. He even got five women from Loni in Ghaziabad to stay there,'' said a police officer.
 
Sharma complained to senior officers of northeast district after the local Bhajanpura police refused to act. When the cops didn't take any call on whether Malik's papers were fake, Sharma moved the commissioner's office. This time the IO concluded that it was an organized gang at work. On Friday, a case was registered and two of the accused - Hasina and Salim - were arrested. "They told us they had been hired by property dealers from south Delhi and UP for grabbing such properties," said an officer.
 
Another modus operandi is to lodge false complaints at UP police stations and force person to sell off his property. A businessman in Yusuf Sarai is facing a case of attempt to murder at Pilkuah and Loni in this regard.

Maharashtra ends system of NOC
Oct 07, 2012
For home buyers in Maharashtra, selling a newly-purchased flat meant obtaining a ‘no objection certificate’ (NOC) from the developer in order to transfer ownership to the new buyer.
