National, Wed, 19 Nov 2008 IANS

Lucknow, Nov 19 (IANS) As many as 13 people, including a government official, have been booked for encroaching on 'Waqf' (a Muslim charitable endowment) property, and selling it off fraudulently in Uttar Pradesh, the police Tuesday said.


Waqf is a gift of land or property made by a Muslim, intended for religious, educational, or other charitable use.



'Out of the 13 people, one is a Waqf inspector, who apparently procured fake documents and managed to sell a building in Khwaja Qutub locality in Bareilly, which is Waqf property,' police inspector N.K. Bhatnagar told IANS over telephone from Bareilly, 250 km from Lucknow.



He declined to reveal to whom the property was sold. Efforts are on to trace the 13 people, who are still at large, he added.
