The complainant, Anirudh Ramteke (28), is a builder and a resident of New Indora, Punjabi Line, mentioned in his complaint that Narendra Bhati (57), Manohar Bhati (51), Purshottam Bhati (49), Sushila Parmar (54) and Arvind Bhati (47) sold him a plot near Nanga Putla at Itwari in 2014 claiming that it belonged to them. Ramteke then started construction on the said plot by investing Rs 17 lakh.
