NAVI MUM­BAI: The po­lice have booked four more peo­ple on Fri­day for al­legedly sell­ing flats in il­le­gally con­structed build­ings in Digha.

The sus­pects, Di­pak More, Prakash Ture, More­sh­war Ture and Ganesh Ture, al­legedly pre­pared fake doc­u­ments for reg­is­ter­ing a few flats in Trimu­riti and Saidhan apart­ments and sold them.

The build­ings were il­le­gally con­structed on MIDC land.

Fol­low­ing two com­plaints re­ceived from the vic­tims the po­lice reg­is­tered the cases against the sus­pects.

All of them are real es­tate agents.

So far, the po­lice have reg­is­tered 54 cases and ar­rested over 20 peo­ple, most of them real es­tate agents, who helped in mak­ing fake doc­u­ments for the reg­is­tra­tion of flats.

The Bom­bay high cour t di­rected de­mo­li­tion ac­tion against a to­tal of 99 build­ings which were con­structed il­le­gally on Cidco and MIDC land in Digha.

The high court, fol­low­ing a PIL filed by an ac­tivist Ra­jiv Mishra had asked MIDC and Cidco to de­mol­ish the con­struc­tions.

Both Cidco and MIDC have

been car­ry­ing out a de­mo­li­tion drive fol­low­ing the di­rec­tions of the high court. MIDC and Cidco had be­gun a crack­down on 99 unau­tho­rised build­ings in Digha af­ter the Bom­bay high court di­rected the cor­po­ra­tion to re­move all such struc­tures.

Even the Bom­bay high court had asked Navi Mum­bai po­lice to in­ves­ti­gate the role of of­fi­cials from dif­fer­ent agen­cies in the il­le­gal struc­tures case.

In most of the cases, Ra­bale po­lice had reg­is­tered a cheat- ing and forgery case un­der sec­tions 420, 120 (B) and 406, along with, other rel­e­vant sec­tions of the In­dia Pe­nal Code.
