Ludhiana, November 30
The police have registered cases against six persons under relevant sections of the CrPC in two cases of fraud.
Four persons, identified as Bhagwan Singh, his brother Surinder Kumar, both residents of Kaleh village in Ram Besohar sub-division of Shimla in Himachal Pradesh, Samuel Sabharwal and Raja Sharma, residents of New Swatantar Nagar, were booked under Sections 420/120-B for fraud and criminal conspiracy on the complaint of Gurmeet Singh, a resident of New Subhash Nagar Colony.
The complainant said he had purchased a house constructed on a 75 sq yd plot in New Subhash Nagar from the accused persons for Rs18,60,000. “The accused had told me that there was a bank loan of Rs3,00,000 on the house, which would be paid by the buyer, while the balance payment of Rs5,60,000 was given in cash by me. However, later I learnt that the actual amount of the bank loan was Rs18,00,000 and the bank could take the possession of the house any time for default in repayment,” said the complainant.
The police were investigating the matter, but no arrest had been made so far.
In another case of ATM fraud, the police have registered a case under Sections 420/379/34 of the IPC against two unidentified persons on the complaint of one Sunil Kumar, a resident of Jagdishpura on Tajpur Road. In a complaint to the police, Sunil said he had withdrawn Rs6,000 from an ATM of Axis Bank on Tajpur Road in the afternoon on November 28. He said two youths standing behind him had managed to exchange his ATM card with another and left the place.
“Later, the accused withdrew Rs5,000 from my bank account and also made purchases of Rs2,598 and Rs9,298 from Vishal Mega Mart with my ATM card,” said the complainant.
