  • The gang had formed a WhatsApp group in the NCR to give information about property. In the latest case, the accused had prepared documents of two plots measuring 60 yards each in the C-block of Sushant Lok. The owner of one plot lived in Qatar and the other in another city. The plots were sold between November last year and January.

The accused, including a woman, have reportedly confessed to having pocketed Rs 100 crore. The involvement of revenue officials and Ansal employees is being suspected. The police have identified seven other members of the gang. Fake allotment letters, fake seals and Rs 10 lakh have been recovered from the accused.

The accused were on Thursday produced in local court, which sent the woman to judicial custody and the two masterminds on two-day police remand.

The accused were identified as Vibha of Gurugram, presently living in Faridabad, Rajender alias Raju of Laxman Vihar in Gurugram and Lucky Uppal of West Patel Nagar in Delhi.

On January 23, Anup Singh Dhankhar filed a complaint that the accused prepared fake documents of his plot and registered it on another name.

The police arrested Vibha from Faridabad on February 6 and she was sent in judicial custody. The police nabbed Rajender and Lucky on Wednesday.

“Vibha has confessed that she had registered an Ansal plot on her name and sold it to Sahil Gogia for Rs 85 lakh. They complete all formalities like registry, sale deed, affidavits, witnesses and fake IDs. The involvement of Ansal employees and revenue officials cannot be ruled out. They use permanent witnesses in the tehsil during registration and a search is on,” said Chander Mohan, DCP (East).

The accused posed as property dealers and identified properties not visited by owners primarily NRIs. They reportedly prepared fake documents to sell the house or plot on market rate.
