Conman strikes land deal for Rs 750 crore

New Delhi, Nov 21, 2012, DHNS:

A 63-year-old man impersonating as a former Member of Parliament has been arrested from south west Delhi’s Dwarka for carrying out a fraudulent land deal of 300 acres worth Rs 750 crore in Gurgaon in 2006, police said on Wednesday.

Dhananjayan K G, who is from Kerala’s Thrissur district, had received a token amount of Rs 3 crore from Kohli Housing and Development in 2006. “He has confessed to have indulged in cheating to clear his debts,” said S B S Tyagi, deputy commissioner of police (crime and railways).

He was held after a long probe after Sameer Kohli made a complaint on behalf of the company in 2009. Sameer told police that Dhananjayan also claimed to be an office bearer of All India Farmers Association and offered to sell his 300 acres of land in Gurgaon.

“To impress the complainant, Dhananjayan used to drive around in a BMW car with an MP sticker. He also met the complainant at five-star The Park Hotel and finalised the deal,” Tyagi said.

However, after receiving the token amount money of Rs 3 crore, Dhananjayan disappeared and remained absconding. Sameer hired private detectives to trace the accused, but all in vain.

On Sameer’s statement, a case of impersonation and cheating was lodged with Economic Offences Wing police station and investigation taken up. Dhananajayan was also declared Proclaimed Offender in 2011.

Later, the Special Operations Squad of Crime Branch started gathering intelligence and finally succeeded in apprehending Dhananjayan from Dwarka Sector 12A on Tuesday. On sustained interrogation, Dhananjayan told police that he met Sameer through a common friend in 2006.

Tyagi said Dhananjayan lured Sameer to purchase his so called land and indulged in the cheating to clear his debts.
