Parshotam Singh R/o Sidher, Suchetgarh, R.S Pura, Jammu in case FIR No. 85/2023 P/S EOW, Crime Branch, Jammu in the Court of law for judicial determination after their involvement in hatching criminal conspiracy, cheating and duping the complainant – Maqsood Ahmed S/o Mohd. Latief R/o Drawtay Tehsil R.S Pura Jammu was established in the case investigated by Economic Offences Wing – Crime Branch Jammu.

   The case owes its origin to a written complaint lodged in Crime Branch Jammu by complainant – Maqsood Ahmed S/o Mohd Latief R/o Drawtay Tehsil R.S. Pura, Jammu, wherein he had alleged that on 25-12-2020 he purchased a plot of land, measuring (15) Marlas at Drawtay Tehsil R.S Pura, Jammu from the accused persons (1) Karanjeet Singh – a property dealer and (2) Rajinder Singh – Naib Sarpanch and property dealer for a monitory consideration of Rs.27  lakhs for which he had paid an amount of Rs.15 Lakhs as advance payment. Later an amount of Rs. 10 Lacs was deposited in the account of accused Rajinder Singh by cheque and an amount of Rs. 5 lakh was paid by cash to accused Karanjeet Singh. Accordingly, an agreement deed was signed (agreement Biana) by the Executants and witnesses on 26.12.2020. The complainant approached the accused Karanjeet Singh for balance payment and execution of sale deed but to his utter dismay accused refused to do so. He again approached him with the request to refund his payment in case he is not able to handover him possession of the said plot. While pressing them to refund the payment accused also threatened him to kill his entire family in case he demanded his money. The accused issued cheques in his favour which were dishonoured by Bank due to insufficient amount in the account, thus duping the complainant on the pretext of sale of a piece of land.

           On receipt of complaint a Preliminary Verification was conducted and during the course of enquiry the allegations made were prima-facie substantiated, leading to the registration of a formal case under the relevant sections of law for in-depth probe.  During the course of investigation all material evidence in the form of documentary record was collected from concerned quarters besides statements of complainants & witnesses were recorded and the offences established against both the accused for cheating and duping the complainant of Rs. 20 Lakhs on the pretext of selling a piece of land, market value of which has more than 50 Lakhs as of now. Both the accused did not cooperate in the investigation process and were arrested by Crime Branch Jammu on 06-12-2023 and 07-12-2023 and charge sheet has been produced against them in the Court of law.
