Hyderabad: The sleuths of the commissioner's task force, south zone team, along with the Chandrayanagutta police nabbed seven persons for cheating and extorting money from people by forging stamp papers of open plots and grabbing the lands.

The police seized 92 fake land documents, 13 rubber stamps, six cell phones, and cash worth Rs. 2.10 lakhs.

The arrested persons have been identified as Ali Bin Mohammed Jabri, Md. Wasi, Mir Shaker Ali, Syed Karamath Hussain, Wahid Ali, Mohd. Fazal Shareef, and Mohammed Khan. Meanwhile, seven others - Mohammed Mujeeb Khan, Saif Yafai, Salam Hamdi, Abdullah Masood, Fareed Khan, Husamuddin, and Azher Ahmed - are absconding.

During the course of the investigation, the police found that the accused person, all residents of Hyderabad, had formed a gang to grab vacant plots by forging the stamp papers. According to the police, the prime accused, Ali Bin Mohammed Jabri and Md. Wasi, would collect information about open plots and inform Mir Shakir Ali, who would then contact Mohammed Mujeeb Khan who procured old stamp papers from different scrap vendors. Mujeeb used chemicals to erase details on the old stamp papers and then handed the forged ones to Wahid Ali.

On the advice of Mir Shaker Ali, Wahid Ali prepared a series of link documents from 1991 till date for pseudo persons and on fake addresses. After this, Mohd. Fazal Shareef stamped the papers using the fake notary rubber stamps to make them look like the original sale deeds.

Further, with the help of link documents Syed Karamath Hussain, Fareed Khan, and Azher Ahmed acted as the original landowners and pretended to sell their land to innocent customers. Finally, Saif Yafai, Salam Hamdi, and Abdullah Masood, at the behest of the fake landowners, would threaten and grab the existing plots from the original owners.

On 12 December, the police apprehended the accused men who, along with the seized property, were handed over to the SHO of Chandrayanagutta police station for further action.
