The police have arrested two persons and booked five others in cases of fraud and cheating in the city.

Two persons, identified as Paranjit Singh and Prince Sharma, residents of Hargobind Nagar, were nabbed by a police party from Subhash Nagar Chowk on Sunday on a tip-off that they were loitering outside an ATM and cheating gullible persons by changing their ATM cards and withdrawing money from their bank accounts.

The police said 22 ATM cards of different banks were recovered from the duo, who have been booked under Sections 420 and 120-B of the IPC.

The police have booked three persons, identified as Manish Kumar, Varinder Kumar and Japinder Singh, under Sections 465, 467, 468, 471, 420 and 120-B of the IPC for fraud, cheating and fabrication of documents on the complaint of Harsh Sharma, resident of Ashok Nagar. The complainant stated that the accused persons had fraudulently got a plot measuring 125 square yards of their father Joginder Nath at Kalkaji in New Delhi transferred in the name of their mother without the knowledge of other legal heirs. The plot was subsequently sold to Sunita Singal and Balraj Singal on the basis of forged and fabricated documents. Further, the accused persons had got another house in Mohalla Peeru Banda here in their name in a fraudulent manner and had also misappropriated 250 tolas of gold jewellery and cash, which was ancestral property.

Yasu Aggarwal, resident of Jagannath Puri, Mathura, UP, and Mathua, owner of James Art Gallery, Tilak Dwar, UP, have been booked by the police under Sections 294, 500, 506, 511 and 341 of the IPC for sending obscene messages, defamation, criminal intimidation and wrongful restraint on the complaint of Ganeshwar Sood, resident of Citizen Enclave, Barewal Road here.

The complainant told the police that the accused persons had entered a deal with his firm for interior work of their house for Rs 9.5 crore. “Some items were prepared and sent to the accused persons who also made part payment of the same through bank transfer. However, with the evil intention of taking the delivery of rest of the material without making balance payment, they started threatening us, sent obscene messages to my wife, threatened my father with a firearm

and started stalking our family members,” said

the complainant.
