2 CON MEN ARRESTED: The police have arrested a suspected swindler and a stamp vendor on the charges of preparing fictitious CNIC of late Muhammad Iqbal of Ram Garh to usurp his nine-marla land located in the village.

Iqbal had died leaving nine marla land but Qasim Ali of Kaleke was intending to usurp the land. He with the collusion of stamp vendor Saifullah got bogus CNIC of the deceased and visited DCO Office to get the ‘fard’ (ownership document) to get the transfer of the land in favour of Qasim.
