Bengaluru: Man tries to usurp land of doctor who saved his life days earlier

Nearly two weeks ago, Dr Kumar (name changed), a renowned heart surgeon in Bengaluru, had rushed to his hospital at an ungodly hour to save the life of one Mohd Ibrahim Pasha, who needed immediate angioplasty.

Around that time only, nearly a week ago, he got a call from his mother Kamalamma, who had noticed some suspicious activities near her empty plot, worth crores of rupees, in an upscale Koramangala neighbourhood. They decided to build a compound wall with her name plate to fence of the plot.


“When the wall construction was on, a group of persons barged in claiming this was their land, and threatened us, demanding that we vacate. And to my great shock, the man leading this was Mohd Ibrahim Pasha, the guy whose life I’d saved with an angioplasty,” The Bangalore Mirror quoted Dr Kumar as saying.

Pasha reportedly had all the required documents – forged, of course, according to which Kamalamma had died 20 years ago and left the plot to Ibrahim Pasha as a gift in her will. “The documents were so well-forged, they could pass off as originals,” Dr Kumar said.

So, they lodged a complaint with the Koramangala police and the fraudster was arrested three days ago.

The news report quoted a police officer confirming the arrest and saying that investigation was on as Ibrahim Pasha must have done similar crimes earlier elsewhere.

What shocked Dr Kumar the most was that the land grab threat came from a person whose life he saved a few weeks ago.

Having learnt his lesson, Dr Kumar has now built a compound wall and kept a guard at the vacant plot.
