Amritsar, November 25
The Diocese of Amritsar (DoA), Church of North India (CNI), hailed the arrest of Rockus B Sandhu, a self-styled Bishop and Metropolitan of the Anglican Church, by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Delhi Police for allegedly attempting to sell land owned by the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). Besides, the DoA, has also welcomed the arrest of a UP resident identified as Shoral Bobby Das for allegedly attempting to sell church property worth crores.
Daniel B Das, property manager, DoA, CNI, said the EOW team had arrested Sandhu last Friday from Connaught Place area in Delhi.
“Sandhu had allegedly received Rs 3.19 crore as advance for the sale of Rs 45 crore property owned by the DDA. He was arrested on the basis of a complaint lodged by Timpy Sabharwal, who has alleged that Sandhu and SP Garg had contacted her for selling her the property in question. The complainant later came to know that the duo has no authority to sell the same,” revealed Das.
He added that several other cases of a similar nature had been registered against Sandhu in the past as well.
“It would act as a warning to all fraudsters eyeing government and church-owned properties for fraudulent sales to fill their pockets,” he said. Das added that the DoA, CNI, would hold a diocesan-level probe to look into frauds committed by Sandhu in its jurisdiction. Reiterating the commitment of the DoA to ensure justice for the victims of such frauds, Das urged those affected by such scams to bring these to the notice of the diocesan authorities concerned as soon as possible.
