Puducherry, Nov 23 (UNI) A full-fledged inquiry will be ordered into the 'forged' land deal by two persons, who were arrested yesterday by the CID Police, District Collector Theva Neethi Das said today.

He said no forged land deal took place here after 2004 Meer Sultan land grabbing case, in which two sub-registrars were suspended and licence of a vendor cancelled.

Following the incident, the administration had brought in some reforms, mandating photographs and finger prints of both seller and buyer in the land document.

He said the administration would initiate a thorough inquiry into any land grabbing case.

The present land grabbing incident came to light when one Kripa Sankar, who purchased a property at Lawspet, was prevented by some people from constructing a house in the land.

After thorough perusal, it was revealed that the two persons --Jawhar and Ramesh Babu--who sold the property to Kripa had duped him by handing over forged documents.

The duo had earlier sold the same land to one Kavitha of Mudaliarpet and Hemachandran of Chennai.

On a complaint, the CID police arrested the duo and later they were remanded to 15 days judicial custody.
