Mohali, October 14
The police have booked a woman excise inspector for defrauding a resident of Chunni Khurd in Fatehgarh Sahib district of Rs20 lakh on the pretext of selling land.
Complainant Jagjit Singh, in his complaint to the Mohali Senior Superintendent of Police, said he purchased one acre and 4 biswa land at Khapur village in Kharar from excise inspector Santosh Rani for Rs80 lakh.
As per an agreement, he paid Rs20 lakh to Santosh Rani as advance and the land was to be registered in his name later. While he was going to Kharar from Mohali one day, he saw flats being constructed on the said land.
The complainant said after investigation he came to know that Santosh Rani sold the said land to another person for Rs41.60 lakh. He took up the matter with Santosh and demanded his money back. Initially Santosh agreed to return the money, but later she refused to do so.
When Santosh Rani came to know about the case registered against her, she held a meeting with the complainant but nothing came out of the meeting.
After receiving the complaint, the SSP forwarded it to a DSP-rank officer for investigation. On the report of the DSP and views of the District Attorney Legal, a case was registered against excise inspector Santosh Rani. Sources said the police had also served a notice on Santosh Rani regarding the registration of the case.
A case under Section 406 and 420 of the IPC has been registered against Santosh Rani at the Phase 11 police station.
