The Free Press Journal - - MUMBAI/STATE - - SURESH GOLANI

BHAYAN­DAR: A decade af­ter he con­structed a build­ing in Bhayan­dar on the virtue of fake doc­u­ments, the 52-yearold builder was ar­rested and booked for cheat­ing and forgery by the Navghar po­lice on Satur­day. Iden­ti­fied as Vi­jay Anant Patil, the ac­cused had floated Sai Constructions in 2006. Patil con­structed and sold flats in Hausa Apart­ments, a dou­ble winged 4-sto­ryed build­ing in God­dev vil­lage. Res­i­dents were un­aware that their 10-year-old build­ing was il­le­gal till they were served with evic­tion no­tices by the MBMC in March-2017. In­ter­est­ingly, most of the oc­cu­pants have ob­tained bank loans and are reg­u­larly pay­ing their in­stall­ments.
