Srinagar- A court here has rejected anticipatory bail application of a man accused in a case involving selling off a piece of land that did not belong to him or a co-accused person.
The accused, Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Dar, in league with another accused Kanwal Khrishan Dhar allegedly played fraud with one Azhar Hussain Bhat of Chanpora.
As per prosecution, Bhat was given an offer by the accused Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Dar of Jalwalapora Budgam to purchase a patch of land measuring two Kanal three Marlas at Rajbagh Srinagar on the agreed sale consideration amount of Rs. 4.50 Crores from the owner of the land who introduced himself as Kapil Dhar of Rajbagh Srinagar.
As per Bhat, he along with other witnesses and accused Ghulma Mohi-ud-Din Dar went to Jammu where the accused introduced him to “Kapil Dhar '' who showed a revenue extract of the land under Khasra No. 120 Khewat No. 830. The deal was finalized with the accused persons for an amount of Rs. 4.5 Crores.
Bhat also alleged that he paid Rs. 44 lacs into the account of “Kapil Dhar” through online transactions as well as vide cheques and also Rs. 35 lacs were paid in cash through accused Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Dar.

He further submitted that the co-accused had impersonated himself as Kapil Dhar in league with accused Ghulam Mohi-ud-Din Dar when in fact his real name is Kanwal Khrishan Dhar of Rajbagh Srinagar at present Nanak Nagar Jammu.
