BJP MLC’s hus­band, daugh­ter booked for dup­ing peo­ple

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Uttarpradesh -

MEERUT: Cases have been reg­is­tered against seven per­sons in­clud­ing the hus­band and daugh­ter of BJP MLC Saro­jini Agar­wal for dup­ing peo­ple on the pre­text of pro­vid­ing them af­ford­able houses un­der gov­ern­ment scheme.

SP (city) Ran­vi­jay Singh con­firmed that eight cases against the MLC’s hus­band Om Prakash Agar­wal, daugh­ter Neema Agar­wal and five oth­ers have been reg­is­tered in Dau­rala po­lice sta­tion on the or­der of the court.

“We will in­ves­ti­gate to ver­ify the charges lev­elled in the com­plaints,” said Singh.

Haji Mohd Ir­fan Ansari, one of the com­plainants, said he and seven other com­plainants ap­proached the court when po­lice didn’t pay heed to their com­plaints de­spite their re­quests. He said the ac­cused duped more than 300 ap­pli­cants of ₹10 crore who ap­plied for af­ford­able homes.

De­scrib­ing the charges base­less, Saro­jini Agar­wal said: “My hus­band Dr OP Agar­wal and daugh­ter Neema are di­rec­tors in a com­pany Pra­teek Deal Com Pvt Ltd, which owns our land in Lawar area.”

“This com­pany signed an MoU with Anurag Garg and his as­so­ci­ates for con­struct­ing af­ford­able houses on the land. We only pro­vided them land and it was the sole re­spon­si­bil­ity of Anurag and his as­so­ci­ates to get the map and other for­mal­i­ties ap­proved from the development au­thor­ity. But they formed a com­pany with the name of Ar­vansh CC in­fra­struc­ture and col­lected money from peo­ple, which was not in our knowl­edge. They com­mit­ted a fraud with us and a case re­gard­ing this was lodged against Anurag and his as­so­ci­ates in Dau­rala po­lice sta­tion,” she said.
