A sub-registrar was arrested on Friday by the Delhi government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) for reportedly misusing his official powers and “rendering illegal benefits” to those who were transferring their properties.
The accused, Gulshan Kumar, sub-registrar of Narela, was arrested after the ACB received information on how the Delhi Land Reform Act was being violated while granting no objection certificates (NOCs) for sale deeds and sale of agricultural land in villages.
“Accordingly, the register of the patwari and the sub-registrar were scrutinised. It was found that various sellers had obtained a single NOC and executed more than one sale deed in the names of different transferees. This way, they avoided paying the fee for obtaining an NOC,” an ACB official said.
“In doing so, they caused wrongful loss to the government exchequer and gain to themselves. We have arrested Kumar under sections of the PoC Act, criminal conspiracy and cheating,” Additional Commissioner of Police (ACB) S S Yadav said.
