HYDERABAD: In a shocking incident, a man faked death of his father, a doctor based in Muscat, Oman. Reason: To sell family property for Rs 89 lakh by fabricating a death certificate in the name of his father.
Central Crime Station (CCS) investigators said that K Sudhakar, a pharmacist, in collusion with his accomplices -Vara Prasad, Rajya Lakshmi, Kiran, Venkat Reddy , Sudhakar Reddy , Kanakambara Rao and Nagender -fabricated a death certificate of Venkateshwara Rao, Sudhakar`s father.
“Though Venkateshwar Rao is alive and staying in Muscat, Sudhakar executed a sale deed in the name of Vara Prasad and mortgaged the house located at Vasavi Nagar in Karkhana with Ms Magma Finance and raised Rs 89 lakhs. But Vara Prasad defaulted on payment of the monthly instalments as per the terms and conditions of loan,” deputy commissioner of police (CCS) Avinash Mohanty said.
For the past several years Venkateshwar Rao has been working in Muscat and allowed his son Sudhakar to reside at the house.
“Using computer, a fake death and legal heir certificates were created by Sudhakar with the help of other culprits, who are yet to be arrested. Sudhakar feared that this prime property , worth Rs 5 crore, might not be given to him as it was heading for a legal dispute since his father has two wives,” assistant commissioner of police (CCS) Ram Kumar told TOI.
