• Cancellation of mutation

I am an overseas citizen of India having US citizenship. 
I lost my house and properties in India because of the fraud transactions and impersonation carried out by a group of culprits while I was away in the USA. 
The Crime Branch has concluded the investigation with the findings that the accused made the transaction by creating a forged Power Of Attorney on forged stamp papers. Accordingly, the Crime Branch has sent letters to the Revenue Divisional Officer and the Village Officers to cancel the mutation.
I have filed criminal and civil cases against the accused.
My question is:  

Is a Tahsildar empowered to take action to cancel a mutation based on the recommendation of the investigation agency (crime branch) and the transparency of the forgery?

Or does the Indian Penal Code expect the injured party to wait patiently (for a decade or two) till the case gets resolved in the court and until the the culprits can enjoy the stolen property???
