Neta, cor­po­ra­tor’s hus­band named in ex­tor­tion plaint

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Kalyan: Two peo­ple, in­clud­ing an MNS func­tionary and the hus­band of BJP cor­po­ra­tor, have been booked for al­legedly de­mand­ing Rs 5 lakh from a de­vel­oper in Ul­has­na­gar. The two al­legedly threat­ened to tar­nish the builder’s name such that he would find it hard to find any buyer for his real es­tate project.

The de­vel­oper, Anil Bhatija, part­ner of the Re­gency group which is developing multi-storeyed project in Ul­has­na­gar, has lodged a com­plaint against Sachin Kadam, vice-pres­i­dent of Ma­ha­rash­tra Navnir­man Sena in Ul­has­na­gar and Gyanesh­war Patil, hus­band of Bharatiya Janta Party cor­po­ra­tor Jayshree Pati­lat Tit­wala po­lice sta­tion. Kadam and Patil have re­futed the al­le­ga­tions against them.

On their part, they have claimed that the builder has en­croached upon re­served gov­ern­ment land and since they had ex­posed him by bring­ing to the fore cer­tain ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties in his realty project, the builder had lodged a false com­plaint against them. —Pradeep Gupta
