According to the police, the woman said that she was informed by neighbours that someone is staying in her flat. In September, she came to Delhi and when tried to enter the flat, however, the occupant denied entry to her.
"The woman claimed that when she tried to raised the issue, she was threatened with dire consequences. She claimed that her flat was encroached upon by Prabhakar and others on the basis of forged documents,” said the officer.
During initial investigation, the police found that Manoj Goyal, a property dealer, who is also one of the accused in the case has prepared forged papers and helped Prabhakar to occupy the flat.
"After going through initial investigation, a case has been registered at Malviya Nagar police station. We will call Prabhakar for questioning," said a police officer. Prabhakar has rejected the allegations made against him by the woman.
He said that he has been living in the flat on the first floor for the past 23 years and has never seen the woman. "We do not know anything about the woman. I don't know who lives on the second floor," said Prabhakar. (With PTI Inputs)
