Based on the Madras high court’s directions, the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption on Wednesday filed a corruption case against unnamed officials at TNHB KK Nagar division and Ashok Nagar sub-registrar for allegedly issuing false documents.
The DVAC was asked to investigate a complaint by Dr S Arunkumar and other flat owners of KK Nagar TNHB complex on the genuineness of a letter by TNHB administrative officer to a man named V Prabhakaraja. A fraudulent sale deed document issued by Ashok Nagar sub-registrar and another sale deed issued by the SRO.
The complainant said four residential flats in the MIG block on PT Rajan Salai in KK Nagar had been allotted to four people and TNHB executed the sale deeds. The four allottees later sold it. The complainant said the sale deed was only for the flats and not the undivided share of land. Prabhakaraja was neither an allottee nor a subsequent purchaser of the flats, the complainant said.
The complainant said the alleged fraudulent letter issued by TNHB stated the undivided share of land was 1,664sqft and was given to Prabhakaraja for availing a loan. This despite him having no right over any flats in the complex.
Based on this letter, the sub-registrar Ashok Nagar registered a sale deed executed by one of the owners P S Malathi in favour of V Sugantha, an influential person’s wife, the complainant said.
The issue is that the survey number in both these documents is 276, while the survey number in sale deeds of the other three houses is 394/1. “It is not known how TNHB used a different survey number for this house,” the complainant said. The DVAC has registered a case of criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust and corruption.
