KOCHI: Nedumbassery police has submitted a chargesheet against four persons including Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) director board member N.V George and his wife Molly George in the Angamali judicial first class magistrate court in connection with the land fraud case offering CIAL shares worth Rs 6.79 crore. The other accused are Thrissur Amballur native Jini of Manjali House and her husband, Sibi Paul. The complainant is K. P. Johnny of Kannampuzha House in Mekkad near Nedumbassery.
It says the accused led by Mr George perpetrated a fraud on Mr Johny by making him believe that he held most number of CIAL shares and took custody of his 169.65 cent land. Nedumbassery police registered a case based on Johny’s complaint in 2015 November and started an investigation. The complaint says the fraud was perpetrated from 2013 March 10 to 2015 September 14. The modus operandi was to prompt Johnny to buy the 169.645 cents spread in five title deeds under Chengamanad sub-registrar office and owned by different persons, in the name of the accused, which Johny did.
The chargesheet says that the accused also extorted crores of rupees from the complainant raising various demands including sprucing up of Rangam Theatre in Thrissur, documentation of building permit for community marriage and towards the personal loan. Though Jini and husband Sibi Paul were excluded from the list of accused due to lack of evidence, later they were included after police could collect some. The chargesheet says that since Molly is now a permanent resident of Sharjah, she could not be arrested. However, the investigating officers submitted that the bid to nab her will be intensified. The three others involved in the case have now come out on bail.
