Thiruvananthapuram: The Additional court in the capital attached the land of DGP Sheikh Darvesh Sahib's wife over a complaint by Thiruvananthapuram resident Umar Sherif. The court attached 10 cents of land at Nettayam and issued an order prohibiting the purchase and sale of land in the name of DGP's wife Farida Fathima.

The court's action follows a complaint alleging an agreement to sell mortgaged land to Umar Sherif stating that Rs 30 lakhs paid as advance was not refunded, implicating both the DGP and his wife in the collection of funds.

Umar Sharif stated that he attempted to purchase land in the name of DGP Sheikh Darvesh Sahib's wife, paying Rs 30 lakhs in three installments. When the DGP requested an additional Rs 25 lakhs two weeks later, Sharif asked to review the original documents.

"It was claimed that the property was free of encumbrances. The contract, signed on June 23, 2023, was for two months. Initially, Rs 15 lakhs was paid, followed by two transfers totaling 25 lakhs to the wife's account. An additional Rs 5 lakhs in cash was given at the DGP's chamber. When asked for more money later, an investigation revealed a Rs 26 lakh liability at the Althara SBI branch, leading to contract withdrawal. Despite assurances, the money has not been returned for a year, prompting legal action for non-payment," he said.

The court order stated, " The petitioner has a prima facie case in his favour and that the 1st respondent is about to dispose of the petition schedule property so as to defeat the decree that may be passed against the respondents. Hence, the respondents are directed to show cause as to why they shall not be ordered to furnish security for the plaint claim. In the meanwhile, the petition schedule property is conditionally attached."
