Fake god-man arrested for duping a couple on pretext of getting land in J&K

A self proclaimed god-man was arrested by J&K police for duping an elderly couple on pretext of getting them a property in Jammu and Kashmir.

The couple paid Rs 1 crore to the conman for getting a land deal in J&K that became a Union Territory in 2019 thus allowing people from outside to purchase land and settle.

According to police, the accused, Naresh Kumar, often visited the couple’s house on festivals and functions for rituals. During one such visit last year, he made them an offer to purchase a piece of prime land, while citing the abrogation of Article 370 and claiming it would soon be possible for everyone to buy land there, thereby leading to a sharp increase in the rates.

According to DCP (West) Urvija Goel, Kumar was arrested from Jammu by a team led by SHO (Rajouri Garden) Anil Sharma. A case was registered in October last year on the complaint by the elderly woman, police said.
