BANGALORE- Land mafia is quite infamous in the subcontinent. But no body imagined that one would try to follow the Bollywood idea of ‘Bunty Aur Bubli’ and would sell of the whole Police Station to a realtor.
In Indian state of Karantaka, the traffic police met a fix when a man along with some construction workers tore into the station on Magadi Main road and ordered them to commence building a shed in the compound. The man, later identified as B Shivakumar Swamy, directed his workers to begin constructing a building next to the police station.
He allegedly threatened to have the station razed, claiming the land had always belonged to him. When asked what he was doing, Shivakumar proclaimed that the land belonged to him and he could do whatever he wanted with it. He even forced his way into the station and began creating a ruckus, disrupting police work.
Flabbergasted, the police probed the issue and found that Shivakumar had sold the land to someone called D Nagendra Kamath by faking the ownership documents.
Shivakumar reportedly faked documents to show that a woman named Kamala had allegedly sold the land to him, after which he sold the plot to Nagendra Kamath a few years ago. Kamath, a realtor who had never seen the land, then filed a civil case against Shivakumar when the latter allegedly failed to get the plot registered in his (Kamath’s) name and hand over possession.
Sources say that Shivakumar has also been involved in a few similar court cases for forging land-related documents and cheating people.
