Chandigarh, May 3

A local court has issued non-bailable warrants against four absconding accused in an alleged property grab case in Sector 37, Chandigarh.

The non-bailable warrants have been issued against accused Arvind Singla, Khalendra Singh Kadyan, Gurpreet Singh and Saurabh Gupta on an application filed by the police. The UT police had already announced a cash reward of Rs50,000 for information leading to the arrest of the four accused.

Meanwhile, the court has also issued notice of appearance to other four accused for May 7 on a chargesheet filed by the police in the alleged property grab case.

The chargesheet was filed against Sanjeev Mahajan, realtor Manish Gupta, suspended inspector Rajdeep Singh and Satpal Dagar. With supporting documents and related audio and video recordings, the police have given detail of the alleged fraud committed with the owner of the house, Rahul Mehta.

The police had booked nine persons in the alleged fraud case. Running into more than 18,000 pages, the chargesheet listed 78 witnesses.

It has been alleged in the chargesheet that some of the accused entered a two-storey house of Rahul Mehta in Sector 37 and took possession of the first floor in March 2017. The accused had allegedly taken signatures of Mehta on papers after torturing him. Rahul Mehta was later abandoned in Gujarat.

The police said an imposter of Rahul Mehta was produced before the office of sub-registrar at the time of execution of sale deed of the house. Soon after the registration of the FIR, the police arrested two accused - Sanjeev Mahajan and Manish Gupta - on March 2. The other two accused - Satpal Dagar and inspector Rajdeep - were later arrested.

Vishal Garg Narwana, counsel of one of the accused Satpal Dagar, said the police had filed the chargesheet in a hurry. They would challenge the chargesheet before the court once they get its copy. — TNS
