Reports indicate that Nitul Das, a senior assistant registrar at the DC office, had his Kharguli residence raided by the crime branch.

Officials arrested Das from his office following the raid. Several incriminating documents, approximately Rs 2.5 lakh in cash, and numerous land-related documents were allegedly found at his home.

The raid also uncovered multiple counterfeit seals, a TI book, and a volume registration book. The action was instigated by a complaint lodged with the cyber cell, exposing Das’s fraudulent activities.

He is accused of being part of a large racket conducting these fraudulent activities, deceiving several individuals via online methods and accruing significant financial gain. Officials stated Das was involved in illicitly registering lands in other people’s names.
