The res­i­dents re­alised they had been cheated and ap­proached the ac­cused’s of­fice at Shivaji Road, near Thane rail­way sta­tion.

The of­fice, called Mutha De­vel­op­ers was locked. Af­ter re­peated calls failed, the res­i­dents went to the Khadak­pada po­lice sta­tion on Wed­nes­day and lodged a com­plaint against the duo. “Dur­ing investigation, we found that the ac­cused had given doc­u­ments to the peo­ple, which proved to be fake when they were shown to the Kalyan-Dom­bivli Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion. We have those doc­u­ments and we are in search of the ac­cused,” the of­fi­cer added.

The ac­cused are yet to be ar­rested.
