SAS NA­GAR: Next time you rent out your house, get the ver­i­fi­ca­tion of the ten­ant done so that you do not end up los­ing your prop­erty.

A gang is op­er­at­ing in SAS Na­gar, who take premises on rent and later us­ing mus­cle power sell the prop­erty at throw­away prices. The trend came to light af­ter the po­lice on Wed­nes­day ar­rested a prop­erty dealer from Bathinda, Varinder Singh, who is a mem­ber of the gang that move in as tenants and later af­ter terming the prop­erty as dis­puted sell it off at throw­away prices.

Neeraj Sen, who re­sides in Chandi­garh, had made a com­plaint to the po­lice in March this year, al­leg­ing that his ten­ant had il­le­gally oc­cu­pied his house at Sec­tor 69, SAS Na­gar.

In his com­plaint, Neeraj al­leged that he had given an an­nexe of his house on rent to one Karan Singh. He added that he got a shock when the ten­ant along with about 10 per­sons had il­le­gally oc­cu­pied the other por­tion of the house.

On ba­sis of the com­plaint, the po­lice had reg­is­tered an FIR on April 30, but the ac­cused ab­sconded af­ter putting locks on the house.

“We raided the premises once again and ar­rested Varinder Singh, who re­vealed that he along with Karan Singh used to take prop­er­ties on rent and later sell them at throw­away prices af­ter terming it as dis­puted,” said Bharat Bhushan, SHO, Phase 8, po­lice sta­tion.

The po­lice are yet to ar­rest other peo­ple in­volved in the case and are in­ves­ti­gat­ing how many more peo­ple have been duped by the gang.
