Nashik: The police arrested a 42-year-old professor called Adinath Nagargoje, a resident of Chaitanya Nagar and Vilas Madhukar Pathak on Friday, for allegedly preparing ownership documents of plots and cheating real owners of plots by making false claims, the police said.
According to a complaint lodged with the Gangapur Road police station by plot owners Subodh Bhagurkar and Raosaheb Patil, the duo made bogus ownership documents of their plots on Rs 100 stamp papers and claimed that they were the original owners.
The victims were allegedly asked to vacate rights over their plots.
