The Gurgaon police on Tuesday booked three private developers and registered a total of seven FIRs against them at different police stations on cheating, forgery and fraud charges. The three developers are Vigneshwara Developers, Unitech and ADEL Landmark Limited.

“We are not yet aware of any FIR being registered against the company or its officials in the past few days. We are a law abiding company and are in compliance with the laws of the land. The allegations made by certain individuals referred by you in the query are false, baseless and without substance. Unitech is fully committed to handing over all the flats in the said project. Meanwhile, the company will pay penalty to the allottees, as per buyer’s agreement, for any delay in handing over the flats,” a Unitech spokesperson said. Officials of Vigneshwara and Landmark could not be contacted.

In the first case, the Sadar police registered three FIRs against the Unitech Group after the city commissioner of police ordered the economic offenses wing (EOW) to question Unitech executives for allegedly cheating buyers of ‘The Residences’ project in Sector 33, Gurgaon.

According to the complainants, the buyers of this particular project have been cheated to the tune of Rs. 548 crore. The EOW will now investigate the issue since three buyers of this project have registered an FIR on Monday night after the commissioner’s orders.

The developer has been booked under Sections 420, 406, 409 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code for cheating, forgery and fraud.

In another incident, three fraud cases were registered against Vigneshwara Developers for cheating and criminal conspiracy.

The Sushant Lok police have booked Sunil Dahiya , Sanjay Dahiya and Dariyao Singh Dahiya and Surjeet Singh Hooda on Tuesday after three investors turned up with their complaints at the police station.

“A case under sections 406, 420 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against them,” ACP( crime) Rajesh Kumar said.
