SRK’s plot in spot­light for the wrong rea­sons

The Free Press Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Shah Rukh Khan may be re­gret­ting the birth­day splash at Alibaug. The birth­day jam­boree has turned the spot­light on his king size plot – a sprawl­ing 11,000 square feet - on which rests his su­per-lux­ury bun­ga­low, a per­sonal he­li­pad and a huge swim­ming pool.

Re­sult: A writ­ten com­plaint has been filed by an Alibaug-based ac­tivist against SRK, his wife Gauri Khan and a com­pany named Deja Vu Farms for us­ing forged pa­pers to ac­quire the plot.

TV chan­nel In­dia To­day broke the story and quoted se­nior in­come tax of­fi­cials who said they were un­aware of the case but have de­cided to quiz the stake­hold­ers, record their state­ments and as­cer­tain whether any be­nami trans­ac­tions took place on be­half of SRK.

The large piece of land is made up of 5 plots which run along the sea. The beach ex­tends fur­ther for about 20 me­ters from the land, mak­ing it a prop­erty re­plete with nat­u­ral beauty.

The pri­mary al­le­ga­tion against the ac­tor is that he had sub­mit­ted an ap­pli­ca­tion to pur­chase agri­cul­tural land for farm use, but in­stead con­structed a su­per-lux­ury bun­ga­low. Ac­tivist Suren­dra Dhavale had filed this com­plaint on Jan­uary 11, 2017, in Khar Po­lice Sta­tion, the TV chan­nel’s por­tal said. The com­plainant had re­quested Mumbai Po­lice to file an FIR and in­ves­ti­gate the case in ac­cor­dance with Chap­ter - XII of the Code of Crim­i­nal Pro­ce­dure, 1973, but that never hap­pened.
