Fraudsters grab doctor’s plot, try to sell it for Rs  3 crore


Gurgaon: A prime residential plot in Sushant Lok-1 owned by an 82-year-old doctor from New Delhi was allegedly transferred twice — first to a non-existent son, and then to another person — without her knowledge and consent. The crime came up to light after the fraudsters put the plot up for sale for Rs 3 crore and a prospective buyer called the doctor to verify ownership last week.
Dr Satya Suri (82), a resident of Defence Colony in New Delhi, purchased a plot in Block-C of Sushant Lok-1 from Ansal Properties in December 1991. Since then, she has been in continuous physical possession of the plot and has never transferred the plot to anyone. She got a shock last week when a person called her up to enquire whether she had transferred the ownership of the plot in favour of her son Ankush Suri or not. She has only one son —Vinit — apart from a daughter.
An investigation revealed that the plot was transferred to Suri’s non-existent son in July 2019 in the presence of an imposter, who claimed to be her at the tehshil office. Later in November 2019, Ankush Suri fraudulently transferred the land to Rajiv Jain, a resident of Delhi.
Suri told police she has never signed or registered any transfer deed of the plot. “The forged signature doesn’t match her signature. Her Aadhar card number mentioned in the transfer deed is also false,” her son Vinit said.
Jain allegedly threatened Suri and her son of dire consequences if they approached police. On the basis of her complaint, an FIR registered against six people under sections 419 (cheating by personation), 420 (cheating), 467 (forging a document), 471 (using forged document) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC at Sushant Lok police station on Sunday. Those booked include Rajiv Jain, Ankush Suri, the woman who impersonated Suri, and those who signed the transfer deeds as witnesses — SC Arora, Bijender Singh and Sanjay Singh.
Earlier in February, Gurgaon police had arrested three persons of a gang that used to take over unoccupied plots using fake papers and sell it to third persons. Since last year, the gang had sold around 10 plots in posh localities of Gurgaon and Delhi, amassing over Rs 60 crore.
