After freezing 18 bank accounts used by Citibank relationship manager Shivraj Puri to divert corporate funds, the Gurgaon police have now turned the heat on his properties.
Sources in the Gurgaon police claim the scam mastermind had invested a lot of money in the real estate sector and projects still under construction.
As Puri is behind bars now, police fear developers might try to resell the property.
Thus, builders of projects where Puri had invested have been asked not to sell the houses as the police plans to make it case property.
“During the course of interrogation when Puri was in police custody, he told investigators about his investments. He had booked several flats and was paying installments.
As many projects are yet to come up and Puri has stopped paying the dues, the developers might think of selling the property. We have identified the areas and issued a letter to the builders,” said a senior police officer.
“We have started attaching the properties but do not have a concrete list. He had invested in nearly a dozen properties,” he added.
