PUNE : The Kondhwa police on Saturday initiated a probe against four persons, including a former Shiv Sena corporator, in a case of cheating, forgery and assault in an attempt to grab a piece of land located at Gangadham Chowk near Market Yard.
The police said the incident took place on Saturday morning. A 32-year-old woman of Gangadham Road, Kondhwa, lodged a complaint with the police in this regard.
The complainant, her husband and another relative visited the Gangadham area, where they own a small piece of land, after a resident claimed the complainant’s father had sold the land to his father, the police said. While inspecting the land, arguments ensued between the complainant and the resident and his two accomplices. They assaulted the complainant, her husband and the relative.
The ex-Shiv Sena corporator reached the spot and requested both parties to resolve the issue amicably. He also threatened the complainant.
