A resident of Islamabad on Friday sought help from State Minister for Interior Shehryar Afridi in retrieving his property and cash worth over Rs40 million from fraudsters.

He said Sardar Sagheer and his two other friends deprived him from his house and cash worth over Rs40 million on the pretext of friendship.

Muhammad Tazeem Khan, a resident of sector I-8, has filed a complaint to State Minister for Interior Shehryar Afridi against Sagheer, a resident of Bhara Kahu, and his friends, identified as Sheikh Amir and Malik Aftab, for confiscating his house in Sector D-12.

He stated in the application, submitted to Afridi, there was over Rs1.6 million furniture and valuables in the house.   The complainant further said Sardar Sagheer also used his daughter as a tool to transfer his five Marla plot on his name. The victim added that Sagheer had also taken Rs1.4 million from his daughter which he had deposited with her as trust (amnat).

Khan further said the suspected man had also purchased 910 generators worth over Rs30 million from him but he didn’t made payment yet. He added Sardar also purchased 31 other generators in replacement of a non-paid custom vehicle but later the customs took the vehicle into custody, following fake documents.

The applicant said when he demanded the money the suspects instead of returning the said money started harassing him. He has appealed to the state minister for interior to take notice of the issue and help him in recovering his money from the culprits.

He also appealed to the minister to take strict action against the suspected men for their frauds.
