CBI has booked tax lawyer Kapil Khanna & Sector 11 resident Amardeep Brar in connection to filing a forged writ petition before Punjab and Haryana High Court in an alleged attempt to grab a thirty crore plot in sector 5.
Advocate Anadeshwar Gautam drafted the forged plea at Brar’s instance, who Khanna accompanied.
During a discussion, Gautam was informed that Padamjit Singh( who owns 50% of the property) has settled with Paushara Singh Thind and wanted to sell his share and executed a GPA. Gautam was paid rupees fifty thousand as a legal fee.
CBI registered a case under relevant sections of the IPC, and also under provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act, the High Court had directed that a case should be registered.
As per the CBI inquiry, the affidavit and vakalatnama, which Gautam filed, did not have Padamjit’s signature. It was also found that an email was sent from Paramjit’s fake account to the estate office, UT.
As per the probe, the property’s original file went missing from the estate office in June 2012. The office reconstructed the file related to the transfer of 50% share in favour of Padamjit Singh and Mary Singh’s favour.
Padamjit Singh, who lives in the US, was surprised to know that a petition was filed in the High Court in June 2020 by forging his name, later he approached the High Court revealing the forgery and fraud in his name, and the Court ordered a CBI probe.
The dispute is related to a house worth 30 crores which Padamjit and his brother inherited from their father. Even though a case was filed related to the property, Padamjit won it.
Later, Padamjit sold his share to Pritam Kaur and executed a sale deed for the same.
Kaur’s son informed Padamjit that a petition had been filed in his name claiming 50% share and refuting the sale deed. The Court sent the matter to the CBI.
