The MRA Marg police station have arrested four persons, including two senior citizens for fraudulently converting a trader's license and impersonating him.

The incident took place last year in 2017 and the complaint was first registered with the Marine Drive police station. The complainant, who runs a coconut stall at Nariman Point, alleged that when he fell ill and moved back to his ancestral home in Kerala, he gave the license (in his name) to his nephew Hamza Moiuddin Kotuwala (60) and asked him to run the stall at Nariman Point. The license dates back to 1987.

Hamza's uncle alleged that the document and commodity license, including his name and photograph, had been tampered with..

“Hamza had control of the license, which his relative gave him before going back to his village. He sold the license fraudulently and got it converted in someone else's name. We sent the four accused a notice and asked them to present themselves, but they paid no heed and did not cooperate. So we had to send our team from Mumbai to go and arrest them from their Kerala homes,” said a detection officer from MRA Marg police station.

Besides Hamza, the other accused are Syed Ali Kutty Kotuwala (65), Abdul Rehman Tandoli (51) and Abdul Kadir Mohammed Haji (56). They are all coconut vendors and belong to the same village.

The police team comprising Police Sub-Inspector Bhosle, Police Naik Vanage, and Police Constables Gaikwad and Ingle, fetched the accused from the southern state.

The quartet has been remanded to judicial custody and they have been charged under Sections 409 (Criminal breach of trust by public servant), 419 (Punishment for cheating by impersonation), 465 (Punishment for forgery), 471 (Fraudulently or dishonestly using genuine document), 472 (Making counterfeit seal with intent to commit forgery) and 120 (B) (Party to a criminal conspiracy to commit an offence) of the Indian Penal Code.
