EOW chargesheet in DDA scam filed

The Delhi Police's economic offences wing on Wednesday filed its first chargesheet in the DDA housing allotment scam. The 7120 page chargesheet was filed against five accused who were arrested over a period of four months and police said a supplementary chargesheet will be filed against Suresh Kumar Meena, who was arrested recently. Filing the chargesheet against ex-DDA official M L Gautam, Laxmi Narayan Meena, Deepak Kumar, Vijay Patanjali and Raju Ram before additional chief metropolitan magistrate Digvinay Singh, the police said they were involved in fradulentaly getting a large number of DDA forms filled with fake names from the reserve category and managed to corner around 58 DDA flats for themselves. The five were charged with cheating, forgery, impersonation, using fake documents as genuine, destruction of evidence, criminal conspiracy and common intention of IPC.

The chargesheet was put up for consideration before ACMM Singh, who fixed April 9 as the day to take cognizance of the same. The court said it would provide the copy of the chargesheet to the accused on Thursday. The Economic Times warrants were also issued against the five accused for Thursday. The chargesheet delves into the details how the five allegedly got DDA forms filled from reserve category candidates belonging to Rajasthan, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.

The first arrest in the case was made on January 9 following media reports alleging fraud in the allotment process. Laxmi Narayan Meena, a Jhunjhunu based former bank employee was arrested after successful allottee Raghubir Singh from Jhunjhunu complained to the police that he was forced to fill the application form by the accused. Subsequently, Deepak Kumar, who first approached a political leader in the capital, was arrested. Kumar was also charged in another cheating case where he allegedly got several PAN cards made using forged documents.

The chargesheet also said more than 18,000 forms under various names in reserve category were submitted by the five accused. The entire planning and execution was done by Kumar, Gautam, Suresh Meena and Patanjali. Gautam gave Kumar the idea of fraudulently obtaining flats in the DDA scheme. Gautam himself cornered 38 flats by filling more than 1800 forms under the Schedule Caste category. Most of the applications by Gautam were made from Bulandshahr, Khurja and Meerut.

The police also recorded the statements of all the 38 successful allottees. The police found the involvement of some family members of Gautam against whom court proceedings were being initiated. The statement of villagers in Jhunjhunu, Bharatpur and Udaipur who were successfully allotted flats in the present scheme were also part of the chargesheet. The allottees in Rajasthan were unaware that they were allotted flats and admitted that some people from Delhi had come to their villages and taken their signatures on DDA forms, said the chargesheet. In some cases, applicants did not even know that applications were submitted in their names.

Police said they were still examinig the role of Suresh Meena. He along with Vijay and Kumar had allehedly filled more than 3000 forms. Suresh reportedly had sold off his flat in Rohini and invested the money in the scam. Later, the three fell out over the possession of the application slip. Kumar then went on to expose the scam. Rajuram, a property dealer known to Kumar also provided Rs 9 lakh for the scam.

The chargesheet also said the police had so far not detected the involvement of any DDA official in the the scam. A report will also be submitted once the police received the GEQD report and FSL reports from Hyderabad. The server along with the software used in the draw process had been sent to Hyderbad.

Meanwhile, Gautam on Wednesday moved his bail application following the filing of the chargesheet.
