Three arrested with forged papers for land ownership

Posted by Anup Baral January 02, 2017 : Police recently arrested three persons for their alleged involvement in defrauding a land owner of Chitwan district by claiming themselves as the owners and selling the property at an underestimated rate. Devendra Thapa (48) and Nagendra Karki (46) were arrested by a team deployed from the Central Investigation Bureau of Nepal Police on December 15, 2016, police said. Likewise, Min Bahadur Bhattarai (34) was arrested on December 21 from Lagankhel of Lalitpur. The trio had sold a land plot owned by Lokendra Raj Pathak in Bhandara-2 of Chitwan district claiming themselves the owners, to an imagined name of Jeevan Raj Pathak, according to police.
They had also undervalued the worth of the land with an area of three bigaha, one kaththa and five dhur to just Rs 100,000 during the transaction registered on March 12, 2010. The trio had forged the owner’s citizenship card and land registration certificate using fake government stamps in cahoots with some government staff, police claimed. Later, on April 19, 2010, the group sold the land to the Natural Flower and Herbal Pvt Ltd, based in Makawanpur district at Rs 4.95 million. The victim had filed an application at the Chitwan District Court after knowing that his land was sold by alleged frauds. The case is still awaiting the final verdict. Meanwhile, police said the trio would be charged for three crimes: forgery of government documents, forgery of government seal and fraud.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
