Delhi: GK house owner shocked to find his property sold off by tenant
A south Delhi-based Chartered Accountant has registered a case against his tenant for allegedly grabbing and selling off his Greater Kailash II flat to a builder.
According to complainant Sachin Jain, a resident of Malviya Nagar, he bought a 300 square yard property from BDR builder private limited in July 2015, which is also duly registered with sub-registrar office at Hauz Khas.
Soon after the purchase, Jain leased the property to Narinder Singh Narag for a period of two years on a monthly rent of Rs 62,500. Jain, in his FIR at the CR Park police station, said that things remained smooth for six months after which Narang stopped paying the rent. "We got a lease deed registered and for six months Narang paid us the rent through cheques. When Narang's family defaulted payment, we sent them a court notice in February 2016, and in April 2016 a case was filed at Saket court. In October, the court directed Narang to pay us the rent for 10 months, for which they paid us Rs 6.25 lakh after the court's intervention," Jain told Mail Today.
Jain claims that Narang requested the court to allow them to stay in the property as the lease deed was for two years, that is, till July 2017. But the real shock for Jain came in August 2017 when he advertised to sell the property. "I got a call from a property dealer who identified himself as Subhash Arora. He claimed that the same property was sold to him by Narang in March 2016. While scanning the document, I found that Narang had forged the documents and sold my house to Arora," Jain said. When Mail Today contacted Narinder Singh Narang, he claimed that the property belongs to him and the charges against him are frivolous.
However, he could not furnish documents related to the property and declined to give an official comment. Property dealer Arora, who bought the house from Narang is also puzzled about the ownership and is planning to approach the police to investigate the matter.
Police has registered an FIR against Narang and are scanning the document to establish ownership. "We are checking the record with several government offices to verify the real owner of the property. Jain has furnished all the documents related to the case, but Narang is yet to give documents," said a senior police officer.
Another senior officer said that Narang's family used to live on the first floor of the building from 1995 to 2014. His brother was living on the ground floor. It was in 2014 that Narang sold the house to BDR Builders, who further sold the 300 square yard first floor property to Sachin Jain after a year-and-half of purchase. In his complaint, Jain also alleged that the Narangs have abused and threatened him with dire consequences if he pursues the matter further.
