A 53-year-old builder, Rajendrakumar Motilal Daga of Aurangabad, was arrested by Samarth police for allegedly duping three persons to the tune of Rs 1.76 crore by allegedly selling them the same property in Nana Peth hiding details of the previous transactions.
Mohammed Fahim Salim Shaikh (23) of Tamir Constructions had moved the court that directed police to register the case.
Earlier, the police had arrested Daga's son Mitesh (32) of Katraj, real estate agent Harun Khan Pathan of Nana Peth and property owner Govind Jivatram Dansingani (61) of Ghorpadigaon.
Police said the duping took place between August 2010 and February 2012.
Police said that in 2008 the property was mortagaged with HDFC Bank. In May 2010, Rajendra Daga took Rs 51 lakh from Chandan Suryakant Kirad of New Timber Market and entered into a notarised agreement for the property.
Inspector (crime) B B Ingale investigating the case, said, "In September 2010, the Dagas, with mediation from Pathan, convinced the complainant that they will make him a shareholder in re-development of the property. The complainant was not informed about previous transactions. The accused took Rs 20 lakh for his share in the property and Rs 30 lakh to vacate the tenants. They entered into bogus memorandum of understanding with the complainant and gave him a fake possession receipt. But again in December 2010, Rajendra Daga sold the property to M/s Yashodhan Reality for Rs 1 crore."
Advocate Kunal Shitre, counsel for the complainant, told the court that Daga and Pathan had twice issued several cheques to complainant but they were dishonoured.
