Fraud held for selling flats

Prepared forged documents to sell vacant DDA apartments

A man was arrested for selling unoccupied DDA flats to people on forged documents, police said on Friday.

Amit Agarwal, 41, of Kamla Nagar in north Delhi was nabbed this week, said Harendra K Singh, additional deputy commissioner of police (economic offence wing).

“He used to prepare forged documents of DDA flats and sold it to buyers,” Singh said.
Police learnt that Amit used to recce the area and identify flats which were unoccupied and had not been attended since long. He then prepared forged documents of these flats to establish ownership.

He identified one such flats at Vasant Kunj and prepared a fake chain of documents, and applied in Delhi Development Authority for conversion of this flat from leasehold to freehold on the basis of these fabricated documents.

Owner of flat Ashok Agarwal came to know about Amit’s intentions and he registered a complaint with police.

Amit had also targeted another flat in Vasant Kunj whose owner was living in Chandigarh. But before he could strike a deal, the owner came to know about this, and he too registered a complaint.

Amit did his schooling from DPS RK Puram and graduated from Hans Raj College in 1994.

His father and uncle had a factory in Jahangirpuri which closed down in 1994. In 2004, he mortgaged this property with K K Agarwal without informing his uncle Vinod Bansal.
When Bansal came to know about it, he registered a case against him. Amit was arrested in November, 2008 and sent to Rohini Jail. In the jail, drugs were recovered from him and on the complaint of the jail authorities, another case was registered against him and he was arrested.

“After he came out of bail, he was absconding since long and was arrested after sustained and meticulous tracking of his movements,” added Singh.
