The charges against Sudhir Kumar Goyal and his associates, arising from multiple FIRs filed by the Uttar Pradesh Police, include fraud, cheating, and intimidation related to deceitful land transactions.

Describing Sudhir Kumar Goyal as an infamous land mafia figure listed under the UP Gangsters Act, the ED disclosed his involvement in fraudulent sale and purchase of immovable properties, along with the illegal development of residential colonies in Bulandshahr.

The agency asserted that Sudhir Goyal and his gang orchestrated more than 10 colonies, lacking proper land use change approvals from the relevant authorities, including the Bulandshahr Development Authority. Allegedly, Goyal executed over 250 sale deeds, power of attorneys, and agreements, totaling ₹100 crore, defrauding unsuspecting buyers and evading stamp duty through undervalued sale deeds.
