BJP MP’s sister-in-law detained at Kochi airport over ‘Doon multi-crore property fraud case’ | Dehradun News

Dehradun: Tehri MLA Kishore Upadhyay’s sister-in-law Nazia Yusuf Izuddin was arrested at Kochi International Airport in Kerala on Wednesday night over her alleged involvement in a land fraud case in Dehradun. According to TOI sources, Nazia was about to board a flight to Singapore when airport officials stopped her.
After her detention, Nazia was handed over to the Kochi police. Meanwhile, Dehradun police who have been searching for Nazia since 2017 (when the land fraud case was filed) left for Kochi to take her into custody. However, Nazia secured protection from arrest from the Kerala High Court before the Dehradun Police team could get there. As a result, Kochi Police had to release Nazia and the Dehradun Police Team, at the time of filing this report, returned from Kerala empty-handed.
Speaking to TOI by phone, Deputy Inspector (SI) Rakesh Choudhary, who was part of the team that traveled to Kerala, said: “The police team, including a female constable, is returning of Kerala without taking Nazia, a defendant in a land fraud case, into custody. Further action will be decided according to law.
Disclosure more about the fraud case, SI Choudhary said, “The land fraud case was filed in 2017 against Nazia and her husband Sachin Upadhyay by their business partner Mukesh Joshi, a resident of Dehradun. The land in question is located in the Rajpur Road area and is worth Rs 26 crore. While Sachin was arrested in connection with the case, his wife Nazia fled. Subsequently, we issued a lookout against her and even announced a cash reward of Rs 1,000 for information on the fugitive accused. Nonetheless, she remained at large until Kochi airport officials detained her.
