Asit To Probe Land Grabbing By Mandrem MLA Jit Arolkar - By Aires Rodrigues
Goa’s Director General of Police Jaspal Singh has directed the Special Investigation Team (SIT) at the Crime Branch to probe the complaint against Mandrem MLA Jit Arolkar of having grabbed land admeasuring 1,48,800.00 sq. mtrs situated at Village Dhargal in Pernem of which Mapusa based Rawloo Khalap currently residing in California is a co-owner. The FIR registered against Jit Arolkar will be investigated by Crime Branch Police Inspector Suraj Samant under the supervision of SP Crime Nidhin Valsan.
On 4th July this year a complaint was filed at the Crime Branch giving details of the land grabbing by the Jit Arolkar who in March this year was elected on a MGP ticket and is now supporting the ruling government having been appointed as Chairman of the Goa Housing Board.
Jit Arolkar grabbed the land and created over 200 plots in the property while illegally and fraudulently executing sale deeds with third parties and selling the entire property in connivance with Pernem revenue officials. Jit Arolkar has also reportedly illegally created number of small plots in the adjacent property belonging to an elderly widow and in defiance of law had similarly illegally and fraudulently sold them to various parties by executing similar devious sale deeds.
On 2nd December in a complaint filed before the Enforcement Directorate, CBI and the Income Tax Commissioner, the authorities were urged to probe the Tax fraud, Disproportionate assets and money laundering by Jit Arolkar. Attention of the authorities was drawn that Jit Arolkar had in 2001 joined the Goa Police as a constable only to quit within a decade possibly after making a huge fortune on land scams and money laundering. The authorities have been given a copy of the affidavit filed by Jit Arolkar on 28th January this year before the returning officer along with his nomination papers for the Mandrem Assembly Constituency which clearly reveals that Jit Arolkar had blatantly amassed very huge wealth way beyond his known sources of income.
