1) Forged deed robs IAF officer’s family of Lohegaon land | By Archana More, Pune Mirror | Updated: Feb 26, 2019.

Cops book five persons, including retired talathi, for cheating widow of Air Commodore Patil, who served the country with distinction for 36 years.

Cheating around landownership has been so rampant in and around the city that the widow of a late air commodore, who served the country for 36 years, including leading the Indian Air Force (IAF) as chief operation officer in the Kashmir Valley during Operation Parakram (2001-02), fell victim to the mafia in Lohegaon. Vimantal police acted swiftly on a complaint lodged by 60-year-old Nina Patil last month and booked five people, including a retired talathi, for cheating and wrongful confinement.

Patil, who stays with her two sons — both software engineers with private companies — in Moshi, lost her husband Air Commodore Amarsingh Patil, a winner of Extra Special Service Medal by the President of India, in a road accident in November last year.

During his service, Commodore Patil had purchased a 3,229 sq ft plot in Lohegaon from Sakharam Khese and Laxmibai Khese for an agreed consideration of Rs 65,000, according to the sale deed of September 13, 1996. They also erected a wire fence around the plot. Due to his service at different places,the family could not construct any permanent structure on the land.

According to Patil’s complaint, she was informed by her family friends on January 3 this year that some unknown persons have started digging the plot. She immediately rushed there with her nephew and noticed that labourers hired by one Rehana Akhtar Khan and her son Ibadur Rehman Akhtar Khan were digging it.

When Patil asked her why she entered their plot, Rehana replied that they had purchased the plot from Khese for Rs 22 lakh with a registered sale deed.The complainant went to the registrar to verify the same.She came to know that Khese and other accused had executed false and forged documents of sale deed before the sub-registrar’s office at Haveli.

Immediately, she filed a complaint at Vimantal police police station. After an inquiry, police booked Lohegaon residents Sakharam Khese (65), Ganesh Khese, Mahesh Khese, Rehana Khan (42) and her son Ibadur Rehman Akhtar Khan (21).

Patil, whose father was also in the defence services like other members in the family, has alleged in her complaint that the accused are local residents with clout in the locality. They forcefully entered their land and tried to obstruct her possession and have unlawfully tried to initiate a construction on the land.After the criminal case, the senior citizen has also moved a civil complaint against the accused and demanded permanent injunction.

Elaborating her struggle, Patil told Mirror, “When we visited the plot last year, we found that somebody is trying to encroach it but later we were busy in hospital as my husband met with an accident. My husband passed away in November 2018 and the accused took advantage of the situation. After my husband’s death, they sped up their activities.

She added, “My husband was a very dedicated officer. During his service, he kept upgrading his rank as flying officer to commodore. But this turn of events is very shocking, causing me mental harassment.”

Advocate Sagar Kothari, who represented the Patil family, said, “The prime accused, Sakharam Khese, used to work as talathi and he is well-versed with land matters.We have found that the accused had prepared sale deed of the property but police have filed the case under section 420 of the IPC for cheating and section 341 for wrongful confinement. They should add sections for forgery also,as it is a clear case of forgery and cheating. All the accused had appeared for anticipatory bail but the sessions court rejected the bail plea and they were arrested.

Late Air Commodore Patil was commissioned as a fighter pilot in IAF on December 23, 1972. He held several important command and staff appointments.During his tenure as a station commander of a forward Air Defence Direction Centre, his station was adjudged as the ‘best contol and reporting unit’ of the IAF for its overall operational efficiency and prompt deployment during Operation Vijay (Kargil War). During Operation Parakram as chief operation officer of forward base in the Kashmir Valley, he played a pivotal role in deployment of all incoming and outgoing friendly forces in the most effective manner, thus ensuring overall operational readiness in the shortest possible time. The station won the ‘best operational wing trophy’ of Western Air Command during his tenure as COO. He retired from service in February 2009 and settled down with his family in Moshi.In November 2018, when he went out for a walk near his society, a car hit him and he sustained severe injuries.After recovering from head and shoulder injuries, he got a cardiac attack and passed away.
