Indore (Madhya Pradesh): A tenant was convicted to five years of imprisonment for using forged documents to get the house in which he was residing registered in his name. On top of it the accused had also taken a loan of about Rs 10,25,000 from a bank in the name of the complainant through the forged registry.

The accused also took a loan of about Rs 10,25,000 from a bank in the name of the complainant through the forged registry. During the investigation, it was revealed that the original name of Ranjit Saluja was Pritesh Bindal who was fraudulently posing as Ranjit Saluja.
