Does charity commissioner got punished for this.

Sir, only the trustee has the legal powers to sell the property of the land. The custodian is only the caretaker of the property and has no right to sell the properties of the trust. And even if motive of trust is changed, the custodian is still not authorized to sell the property of the trust.
