New Delhi: The CBI has registered two FIRs into the alleged corruption in the transfer of prime land in Thane (Maharashtra) that was originally mortgaged in 1925. The land was once held by the princely state of Gwalior and then by the Union government (post-independence) as mortgage.

The FIRs in the case, dealing with the transfer of land to builders by officials of a PSU and the finance department of the MP government, were filed. Though the deed of indenture of mortgage is dated September 3, 1925, 92 years ago, the cheating in the transfer of 314 acres of land allegedly took place in 1968.

The graft took place in 1968 and afterwards in connivance with the officials of Provident Invest-ment Company Limited (PIC), a PSU, the finance department of the MP government and the Thane municipal corporation, the FIR alleged.

The agency has registered a case of criminal conspiracy, cheating and corruption against the unidentified officials of all the three bodies and unidentified builders. It begins with the Hindu undivided family of Mathuradas Gokuldas mortgaging some plots in Yeoor and Majiwada revenue villages of Thane district to secure consolidated debt and interest against a loan taken from the erstwhile state of Gwalior Darbar.
