Fraudster trying to get registry on fake stamp papers held
Rawalpindi: A fraudster was arrested red-handed when he was trying to get a registry on the fake stamp papers valuing Rs750,000 here on Thursday.
The fraudster identified as Iftikhar Satti, was arrested while trying to get a registry worth Rs750,000 from the office of Assistant Commissioner (Revenue) Imtiaz Ahmed Khan Khichi. According to initial investigation, he had installed a machine at his home and was preparing fake stamp papers. Civil Lines Police Station has registered a case under Section 420 against Iftikhar Satti who did not possess an original Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC).
District Coordination Officer (DCO) Saqib Zafar has ordered police and assistant commissioner (revenue) to investigate the matter in detail and unveil the entire gang behind the business.
Talking to ‘The News’ Assistant Commissioner (Revenue) Imtiaz Ahmed Khan Khichi said, “Iftikhar Satti came to my office for a registry. He gave me three stamp papers worth Rs15,000. The stamp papers were looking fake so I asked Iftikhar Satti to wait in another room and in the meanwhile I contacted District Accounts Office to verify the record of these stamp papers. However, I was informed that no record is available about such stamp papers in the District Accounts Office.” “When I asked Iftikhar Satti, from where did he get the stamp papers, he tried to flee, but we got him arrested. And I suspect that he might have a machine to make fake stamp papers present in his home. We are investigating the matter to unveil the whole gang.”
