Baba visited the office for purchasing an apartment. An agreement dated June 19, 2013 was made between Baba’s’s wife and the housing cooperation to pay Rs. 1 lac as advance for booking flat no.7 first floor block-A of the apartment. Later Nazir informed Baba’s wife that if they pay the whole amount together they would get a rebate of 20 percent. An amount of Rs 35 lac was paid through cash as well through cheques to the accused. By the time complainant tried to take possession of the flat, the accused had already sold it to another person.
