GURUGRAM: A district court here on Saturday directed the police to register an FIR following allegations of a scam in the land registration procedure, misappropriation of government funds and misuse of power, against seven revenue officials and over one dozen builders, said a RTI activist.

The court of Judicial Magistrate 1st class (JMIC) Naveen Kumar passed the order to file a criminal complaint against seven revenue officials, seven land registry clerks, fourteen builders and three computer operators at Manesar Police Station.

All the accused, posted at Manesar tehsil between 2009 and 2013, committed the crime at the behest of the builders.

Ramesh Yadav, a Right To Information (RTI) activist and resident of Manesar village, approached the court after police did not register a First Information Report (FIR) even after an Assistant Commissioner of Police accepted in his probe that the officials and builders were guilty under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prevention of Corruption Act.

The matter came to light after the accused registered various plots in Sihi village here in sector 83.

"Builders and revenue officials showed the plots in Sihi village outside Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) during the land registration and after the registration, authorities again put the registered plot under the MCG jurisdiction," complainant Yadav said.

Sihi village falls under the jurisdiction of the MCG.

"Registration fee under the MCG area was seven per cent, while outside the MCG was five per cent. The accused did a scam of over Rs 5 crore 9 lakh," the complainant said.

Aam Aadmi Party RTI cell Haryana chief Sudhir Yadav who exposed the scam early this week during a press conference said after the court order, "People will find many more accused, including politicians behind the bars if probe goes fairly."
