Fraudster booked for duping NRI of Rs25 lakh

Mohali, August 8

The NRI wing of the Punjab Police has booked a fraudster for duping a Kuwait-based NRI of Rs25 lakh on the pretext of selling a plot to him.

The suspect, Kamaljeet Singh, was allegedly duping people through his firm, RKM Housing Ltd, in Sector 112, Kharar. He is already behind bars in other cheating cases.

The victim, Gurmeet Singh of Phase 1, Mohali, who lives in Kuwait, approached the Punjab Against Corruption, Mohali, mentioning that the firm has defrauded him of Rs25 lakh.

A complaint was submitted with the ADGP (NRI Wing). The complainant stated that he bought a 200-yard plot from the firm for Rs14 lakh in 2010. The company demanded Rs3 lakh more for registering the plot in his name, taking the total to Rs17 lakh. Company officials took more money from him citing various reasons.

The complainant repeatedly asked the firm to register the plot, but to no avail. The company kept on changing his plot number and did not register it. Gurmeet then approached Satnam Daun, president of the Punjab Against Corruption. A case was registered against the suspect under Sections 406 and 420, IPC, at the NRI police station here. — TNS
