Rodrigues also drew the attention of the Crime Branch that Jit Arolkar had also reportedly illegally created number of small plots in the adjacent property belonging to an elderly widow and in defiance of law had similarly illegally and fraudulently sold them to various parties by executing similar devious sale deeds.
