My friend fradulently transfers his family property to his own name in khatauni by giving false statement to the Lekhpal and sells the family property to a purchaser. The family files a civil suit for amendment of property card or khatauni and cancellation of sale deed. My question is can the Lekhpal or Civil court or District magistrate or the Government file a criminal case against my friend? The family is not interested in filing FIR or criminal case against anyone.
Members can not state as to whether Government can file a complaint against such false statement made to authorities and it all depends on the attitude of the authorities and their norms to teach a lesson against such fraudulent transfers in future. They have such powers to file complaint to Police. Whether they use it or not is left to their discretion.
