Bhubaneswar, Oct 13: The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) has arrested Bichitra Behera of Malipada in connection with a land fraud.
The case was registered basing on the allegation of Lipika Das for fraudulent sale of her landed property under execution of fake sale deeds by impersonating her and by using forged documents. Subsequently, it was found that two more women namely Satyabhama Das and Dharitri Mohanty have also been victimized in the similar manner by the same racket.
In pursuance of a well hatched criminal conspiracy between the arrested accused Bichitra Behera and his associates had fraudulently made the fake sale deed by impersonating the real owner and falsely identifying the impersonator as the real owner.
In order to materialize their plan, they manufactured the false documents. The accused by entering into criminal conspiracy with Antaryami Senapati, Arjun Senapati and Sujata Mohanty with a view to selling one plot of the real owner Dharitri Mohanty in Malipada Mouza fraudulently made the false sale deed by impersonating the real owner Dharitri Mohanty.
The impersonator Sujata Mohanty was falsely identified as the real owner by the accused Bichitra Behera. In order to materialize their plan, they manufactured the false Aadhaar card by affixing the photograph of impersonator Sujata Mohanty.
“The accused Sujata Mohanty has also signed as Dharitri Mohanty on the RSD. The racket involves illegal sale and purchase of the land by forged documentation and impersonation of the real owners. After the fraudulent sale of the land in favour of the persons of their interest, the accused persons were going to sell it again to other parties. This gang is involved in many other such cases which are being scrutinized by EOW and action would be initiated in all such cases,” said an official.
