In a case of major land fraud, a Pune resident has claimed that his land worth Rs 69.2 million has been grabbed by another person by forging the documents, Pune Mirror reported.
Khemchand Bhojwani, a resident of Park Street in the Wakad area, has lodged an FIR with Sanghavi police that his land, situated at Pimple Saudagar, is being claimed by Naresh Wadhwani, a renowned builder from the city.
As mentioned in the FIR, the complainant has stated that the land belongs to him and the agreement for it dates back to the year 2010. The complaint adds that that it was in 2011that Naresh Wadhwani, who owns Wadhwani Commercials, forged the documents and got the land transferred to his name. Bhojwani claims that Wadhwani is taking possession of the land fraudulently.
“I had this land registered in my name in 2010 and I have all the supporting documents with me. My land is worth Rs 69.2 million at present. Trouble started in 2011 when I got to know that Naresh Bhojwani had taken possession of my land. We tried to resolve the dispute till 2014 as a settlement looked possible. I was assured that everything would be resolved soon but nothing has happened till date and now Wadhwani refuses to vacate my land,” Bhojwani said.
Police have registered a case against Naresh Wadhwani under section 420 (Cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 406 (punishment for criminal breach of trust) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC has been registered.
“The property belongs to us and we have the permission under section 43 of the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Lands Act, 1948. We have all the documents and even in 2015, the district court Pune had given the verdict in our favour. We do not understand why this person (Bhojwani) does not abide by it. All he is producing as evidence is documents under development agreement power of attorney (DAPA), which is an agreement and can be made by anyone. We will file a complaint in this matter soon,” Naresh Wadhwani, told Mirror.
