Techie shocked to find squatters in his home

The police have taken up a case and asked Kumar to produce original documents of the house.

A software engineer and the owner of a penthouse in HAL was in for a rude shock on his return from his native town of Mandya. Sravan Kumar was startled when he found squatters at his yet-to-be occupied southeast Bengaluru house.

Recently, Kumar hired some men to renovate the house and had gone to his hometown. When he returned on January 22, he was shocked to find some people living in the house.

42-year-old Kumar then filed a complaint of cheating and trespassing with the HAL police against a man and a few others -- men he claims to have hired to renovate his house, the police said.

The police have taken up a case and asked Kumar to produce original documents of the house.

“We have asked Kumar to furnish all the original documents of the property and are also questioning the builder to ascertain who has cheated whom,” a senior police officer said.

Preliminary inquiries revealed the builder had executed a sale deed with Kumar. However, the builder has given possession of the same property to one Harisha, and a few others, who are made the accused.

The complainant also told the police that some documents had been forged.

Kumar purchased the penthouse in AECS Layout in Chinnapanahalli for Rs 26 lakh a couple of years ago from a builder named Rangaswamy.
