Nagpur: Mankapur police have booked three persons, including a son of house owner, on the charges of procuring a loan of Rs 26 lakh from a nationalised bank by fraudulent means. Interestingly, the house owner came to know his son mortgaged registry of the house for loan when the bank sent a possession notice to him.
The complainant Bhaktiraj Sharma (69), resident of Prakash Nagar, Zingabai Takli, told police that he had purchased a plot in 1990. In 2007, he built a house on the said plot. Bhaktiraj’s son Suraj too was staying along with his father. Bhaktiraj had kept the registry of his house in an almirah. However, the registry was stolen by his son Suraj with the intention of procuring a loan from a bank. Suraj handed over the registry to his friend Vinod Deoghare (37), resident of New Nandanvan. Later, Suraj, Vinod Deoghare and one more person negotiated a ‘bogus’ dead to sale the house.
The three accused thereafter approached Karnataka Bank and mortgaged the registry of the house seeking a loan of Rs 26 lakh. After borrowing the amount, the accused trio parted with the money among themselves without bothering to return the loan amount to the bank. When the accused failed to repay the loan, the bank sent a possession notice to Bhaktiraj Sharma as the house was in his name. When Bhaktiraj received the notice he was taken aback over the nasty deeds of his son. He immediately lodged a complaint with Mankapur police in this regard.
PSI D M Chaudhary has booked the three accused under Sections 379, 419, 420, 469, 471, 34 of the IPC and probing the matter further.
