New Delhi, Nov. 14 (Delhi Crown): The Delhi Police have arrested one person identified as Manoj Tulsian for fraudulently selling a trust property by impersonating himself as the sole owner and legal heir of the founder of a trust, for Rs 35 lakh.

The market price of these properties is approximate Rs 15 crore, said the Delhi Police.

A police complaint was filed by one Sharwan Agarwal, a resident of Greater Kailash, stating that Tulsian had sold 15 properties belonging to a trust. The case was registered with the Economic Offences Wing (EoW) in May U/s 409/420/120B IPC.

During investigation the role of accused Manoj Tulsian was ascertained. It was found that the trust in the name of “Tulsian Dharmshala Trust” was created by Late Jamna Dass with five trustees.

Late Sh. Radhey Shyam, the father of accused Manoj Tulsian, was also the member of the Trust, and later on Late Radhey Shyam became the managing trustee of the Trust.

After the death of Late Radhey Shyam his wife Pushpa Devi was appointed as Managing Trustee in the general meeting in August 1988. After the death of Pushpa Devi the accused was appointed as managing trustee in the Trust.

There was a provision in the Trust Deed that no property could be handed over to anyone. Despite this fact, accused impersonated himself as the grandson of Late Jamna Dass (founder of trust) and sold the properties for Rs 35 lakh.

The accused Mukesh Tulsian was subsequently arrested and further investigation is in-progress.

In a message for public awareness, ACP (EoW) R.K. Singh (IPS) said – “Be a smart investor, don’t invest your hard money in greed of higher profit and always check the credential of the property from landowning agency/person. Before purchasing any land/property, ensure that documents of the property are thoroughly checked & verified.”
