Gang Of Five Detained For Selling Sites Using Forged Documents | Bangalore News

BENGALURU: A gang of five, including three women, have been arrested for allegedly creating fake documents for a site at HMT Layout, Vidyaranyapura, and selling them for Rs 65 lakh.
The accused are Shirly Jose alias Faiz Sulthana, 33, from RT Nagar, her friend Kabir Ali alias Babu, 35, from Sahakar Nagar, Jagadish alias Yogesh, 40, Jayamma alias M Kalpana, 50, and Pooja alias Vushali, 26 years old, all residents of Vidyaranyapura.
Sources said the site belonged to retired HMT employee Suvarnamma D, 67, a resident of RT Nagar. She bought it in 1988 but did not develop it or visit it frequently. Babu, a real estate agent, learned of this and hatched a plan to rob the site.
He collected the property papers and hired Jayamma to pose as the owner. He created fake Aadhaar, voter card and other papers in Suvarnamma’s name. He and Faiz Sulthana convinced Jayamma’s daughter, Pooja, to pose as Suvarnamma’s daughter, Kalpana.
The gang registered the property in Kalpana’s name through a deed of gift on June 16, 2020. It was projected as a gift of property from Suvarnamma. Later, the same property was registered in Yogesh’s name through a deed of gift on October 5, 2020, showing Yogesh as Kalpana’s husband. Babu found a buyer and sold it on August 24, 2021 for Rs 65 lakh.
The fraud came to light in April 2022 when the original owner made use of a charge certificate and khata of his property to take out a home loan. She was shocked to find that her site had been sold to multiple people. She approached Anoop A Shetty, DCP (North East), and he ordered Vidyaranyapura Police to investigate the matter.
The police registered a case on April 4 and arrested the accused. Preliminary investigation revealed that Babu and Faiz Sulthana also created fake documents for a site in Sanjaynagar and sold it.
