Jamnagar (Gujarat), June 13(IANS) A non-resident Indian, who returned to Jamnagar in Gujarat after nearly 20 years of living in London, was shocked to find apartment blocks standing on two plots of his land in the city. In a police complaint filed here Thursday, Sudhir M. Shah said he had given the specific power of attorney for the upkeep of his two plots in the city to two brothers, Somchand Rayshi Shah and Maganlal Rayshi Shah.
Inspector Sardarsinh Zala said Sudhir Shah alleged that Somchand and Maganlal forged the power of attorney documents, appropriating to themselves more powers on Sudhir Shah’s behalf, and sold the plots for a profit of Rs.5 million.
The brothers had sold the plots to a group of five partners - Jignesh Fulchand Shah, Vipul Jayantilal Shah, Pushpaben Gopal Shah, Premadevi Ramprasad Shah and Premadevi Shankarlal Shah, Sudhir alleged in his police complaint.
Inspector Zala said a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the two brothers and others.
