DIGHA: The Ra­bale MIDC police have reg­is­tered more cases with re­gard to the con­struc­tion of il­le­gal build­ings in Digha.

Among those booked is Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor Jagdish Gavte. A to­tal of seven peo­ple have been booked by the police in two sep­a­rate cases this week.

Fol­low­ing court or­ders, MIDC be­gan ac­tion against 99 build­ings in Digha last year. Sev­eral res­i­dents had ap­proached the court fol­low­ing which some did get relief. Some res­i­dents even ap­proached the chief min­is­ter.

Though the gov­ern­ment has shown a pos­i­tive in­cli­na­tion to­wards reg­u­lar­is­ing the build­ings, the threat of ac­tion has not yet re­ceded for the res­i­dents.

Hence, the af­fected res­i­dents con­tinue to com­plain against the de­vel­op­ers of their build­ings to the police by fil­ing cases.

So far, cases against 58 peo­ple have been reg­is­tered at Ra­bale MIDC police sta­tion. Two of these cases were reg­is­tered a cou­ple of days be­fore Holi.

Res­i­dents Ab­hang Shinde and Vivek Goud have filed two sep­a­rate cases, fol­low­ing which, seven peo­ple have been booked.

Those booked in­clude Shiv Sena cor­po­ra­tor from ward num­ber 5, Jagdish Gavte. Oth­ers booked in­clude Jan­abai Gavte, Arun Gavte, Devraj Vavia, Shirish Patil, Prakash Ture and Vi­jay Sharma.

Deputy com­mis­sioner of police (zone I) Shahji Umap said, “The res­i­dents have com­plained that the ac­cused had con­structed build­ings il­le­gally on land which through fake doc­u­ments they had claimed to be their own and thereby cheated them.”

The police are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mat­ter fur­ther.
