Ludhiana: Ludhiana police have registered a case into an alleged fraud with a Canadian NRI from Ludhiana. An FIR could not be registered in the case, therefore, it had filed an affidavit in the court.

The matter pertains to money transactions with regard to sale of a house in Sarabha Nagar. In his complaint Ravjot Singh, brother of the complainant Harpreet Kaur Dhaliwal of Canada, claimed that in 2005 they had given earnest money of Rs 10 lakh to Rajinder Pal Singh Walia and Sonam Walia, for a house, priced at Rs 59 lakh. He, however, added that the respondents did not fulfil the conditions of the agreement — which included getting all the dues cleared and evacuating tenants — and played fraud with them by not returning their earnest money.

A copy of the FIR with The Times of India suggests that a case has been registered under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (fraud), 193 (false evidence), and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC against Rajinder Pal Singh Walia and Sonam Walia in a dispute related to sale of a house in Sarabha Nagar in 2005. In his complaint filed with the police in 2015, Ravjot Singh, brother of the complainant Harpreet Kaur Dhaliwal of Canada, claimed that in 2005, they had given earnest money of Rs 10 lakh to Rajinder Pal Singh Walia and Sonam Walia, for a house, which was priced at Rs 59 lakh.

He added that the respondents did not fulfill the conditions of the agreement and played fraud with them by not returning their earnest money. However, after the police not registering an FIR, the complainant moved the Punjab and Haryana high court in 2016.
