Proclaimed offender held after 5 years

Tribune News Service

Panchkula, December 8

The detective staff of the Panchkula police have nabbed a proclaimed offender accused of defrauding a Jind resident of Rs16 lakh on the pretext of selling a plot in 2015.

The accused has been identified as Rohtash, a resident of Bhadana village in Jind district.

Ram Mehar, a resident of Jind, told the police that Rohtash and another accused Amarjit, a resident of village Khokhri, had promised to sell him 16 flats for Rs64 lakh. He said they took him to the Housing Board office in Panchkula where Amarjit showed him the list of successful BPL applicants who had signed an agreement with Amarjit for selling their flats. The victim gave them Rs16 lakh and received a receipt for the amount paid.

Ram Meher said when the time came for getting the flats transferred in his name, Amarjit started making excuses. Later he came to know that they had cheated him as the flats were reserved for the BPL category and could not be transferred to him. He said the accused had also cheated the allottees of the flats by not paying any amount to them after signing the agreements with them.

A case under Section 406, 420, 506, 120B of the IPC had been registered against the accused at the Kalka police station on April 13, 2016. Since then, Rohtash had been absconding and the court had declared him a proclaimed offender.
