Thiruvananthapuram: A local court in Thiruvananthapuram ordered the attachment of a property owned by the Kerala state police chief Shaik Darvesh Saheb's wife in connection with a dispute over selling the property.

A Thiruvananthapuram native moved the court alleging that the police chief and his wife collected Rs 30 lakh from him as advance for selling a piece of land owned by the police chief's wife to him by hiding the fact that the land was already pledged with a bank.

The police chief reportedly told a section of media that the prospective buyer was already informed of the bank obligation and he was now raising baseless allegations as he failed to give the agreed price for the property within the stipulated time frame.

Incidentally, the fresh issue comes close on the heels of the state government giving one year extension to Saheb as the state police chief. The court order issued in May came out now.

The petitioner, Umar Sherif, alleged that the police chief and his wife agreed to sell 10.8 cents of land owned by the police chief's wife for Rs 74 lakh in 2023 June. He paid Rs 25 lakh through bank transfer to his wife's account and handed over Rs 5 lakh to the police chief in cash.

However, he came to know that the said land was already pledged with a bank. He then decided to backtrack from the agreement and insisted on getting back the advance money.
