Hisar (Har): A case of cheating and criminal conspiracy was lodged against an RTI activist here for allegedly taking a residential plot from the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) using false documents.

RTI national awardee Manoj Karwasra was booked on Sunday under Section 420 (cheating) and 120 B (criminal conspiracy) of IPC for allegedly availing the plot under the defence category quota on a false affidavit of ex-servicemen, police said.

In his complain, a Hisar-based ex-army man Jagan Nath Godara had alleged that Karwasra had served in the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and hence, he was not entitled for the plot under defence category because ITBP is a para-military force.

According to the complaint, Karwasra was not entitled for the plot under defence category. The police is investigating the matter.

This is the second case registered against Karwasra within a month. Earlier on March 26, he was booked for allegedly using a bogus BPL card to seek information from the authorities free of cost.
