Five land grabbers held; Fake documents seized

On a tip-off, sleuths of L.B.Nagar Zone, East Cyberabad have apprehended five land grabbers, who were indulging in preparation of fake land documents pertaining to vacant plots of old layouts and selling them to innocent persons and also applying for home loans based on fictitious agreements of sale.

Gona Priyankar of Venkateshwara Colony, Saroornagar, Karnati Praveen Kumar of Mallikarjun Nagar, Sagar Ring Road, M. Hari Krishna of Annapurna Colony, Badangpet, Meerpet, Karri Suresh of New Santosh Nagar Colony, Saidabad, Bodupalli Suresh of HUDA Complex and B.N.Reddy Nagar, Vanasthalipuram were arrested. Two other accused Krishna and Suresh alias Chukka Suresh are absconding.

The modus operandi of the accused was that they select open plots pertaining to ventures where layouts were done in late 80s and early 90s and original owners are staying abroad. While accused Hari gathers information about the vacant plots under Hayatnagar, Vanasthalipuram, Meerpet police stations limits, Bodupalli Suresh browses the Telangana website and gathers more details about the ownership and previous owners. They approach Karri Suresh, Priyankar and Praveen Kumar with the details.  Karri Suresh gets all the documents, including the link documents prepared by one Krishna, who is a DTP expert and Praveen Kumar forges the signatures of owners.  Then they make Agreement of Sale in the name of Priyankar or his employee Raju with fake persons impersonating as original vendors and release the documents in the market for sale or sometimes Priyankar again enters into agreement of sale with Raju and submits that documents with various banks for home loans.

The plots successfully registered by the accused using fake documents are: Plot No. 902, Visakha Ventures, Almasguda (Sy No.128); Plot No. 24, Taramathipet, Hayatnagar (Sy No.454 to 458); Plot No 268, Taramathipet, Hayatnagar (Sy No.454 to 458). The fake documents are registered at the Office of the Joint Sub-Registrar of L.B.Nagar and Pedda Amberpet and in connivance of the officials of Sub-Registrar Offices.

The arrests were made under the direct supervision of Mahesh M Bhagavath, Commissioner of Police, East Cyberabad with the guidance of E. Ramchandra Reddy, Addl DCP, SOT Cyberabad by K. Narsing Rao Inspector, Anjaneyulu SI and staff of SOT L.B.Nagar Zone East Cyberabad. (NSS)
