Massive Counterfeit Land Document Racket Exposed by Guwahati Police; Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma Reacts
Guwahati, 23 November, 2023 - A significant breakthrough in the fight against land document fraud unfolded today as the Guwahati Police uncovered a sprawling racket involved in the production of counterfeit land documents. The operation, led by the Guwahati Police, gained momentum after questioning an employee from the Sub-Registrar office in Guwahati and an advocate, revealing crucial information.

Acting swiftly on the obtained intelligence, the police conducted a raid at a location in Kharghuli, unearthing a trove of incriminating evidence. Among the confiscated items were volume registers, thumb impression books, fake official stamps, laptops, land records, and stamp papers—all of which were being utilized to fabricate fraudulent historical land records.

The gravity of the situation prompted a response from the Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, a seasoned politician and a reputed figure in the state. Sarma expressed his concern over the revelation, emphasizing the need for a thorough investigation to bring those responsible to justice.

As the search operation continues, authorities are determined to unravel the extent of the racket and identify any potential accomplices. The implications of this discovery are far-reaching, as counterfeit land documents can have severe consequences on property rights, legal disputes, and overall community stability.

This development underscores the importance of vigilant law enforcement in combating sophisticated criminal networks involved in white-collar crimes. The collaboration between the police, government officials, and legal experts will be crucial in ensuring a comprehensive investigation and swift justice for those affected by the illicit activities of the counterfeit land document racket.
