The police said they will understand the modus operandi of those persons by coordinating with other departments and keeping a regular watch on them.
It may be recalled that the city police had recently arrested two of a three-member gang for attempting to sell land worth crores of rupees, belonging to an NRI, by forging documents such as general power of attorney. One of the accused is an NRI residing in the USA.
City police chief Manish Kumar Sinha said the creation of fake documents of lands is a criminal offence and victims need to report to the local police in such cases. He also said land grabbing cases need a report from revenue authorities and therefore the victims should approach the local tehsildar’s office immediately.
