The Saroornagar police on Friday registered cases against two persons who allegedly created fake documents for a piece of government land by forging signatures of the mandal revenue officer (MRO) and revenue divisional officer (RDO).

A resident of Hyderabad, Pandey, and a Mumbai based businessman, Qureshi, were allegedly behind the forgeries.

Saroornagar MRO Chandra Rao lodged a complaint with the police on Friday that the two persons created a fake sale deed for 18 acres of government land located in Saroornagar.

The fake documents were created on the name of Zubeda Begum, wife of Jukeffer Sha, showing that she had purchased the 18- acre site located in survey number 6 and 12 in Saroornagar.

Chandra Rao said that he noticed the documents when they were brought to him for mutation purposes.

Doubting the land survey numbers mentioned in the documents, Rao probed the issue and learnt that the documents were forged.

Based on the complaint lodged by the MRO, the police registered cases against Pandey and Qureshi under section 420(cheating), 468 ( Forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using a forged document) of IPC and investigation is on.
