Oshiwara resident Vikram Singh filed a case of cheating and forgery against his mother in retaliation after she filed a domestic violence case against him.
His mother Sandhya Singh (51), now a resident of Oshiwara in Jogeshwari, earlier lived with Vikram at MG Marg, Kandivli, in a flat that was bought in 2003, by her husband with contributions from others in the family.
In an application filed by her for bail in a forgery and cheating case against her, Sandhya said relations between her and Vikram began straining after he was married in May 2008. While on a visit to London to meet her daughter in 2009, Vikram phoned her to say his father was ill. On his death, Vikram did not turn up for his father’s funeral.
Sandhya also alleged that after the death of her husband, Vikram began neglecting her and warned her not to enter the Kandivli flat.
On November 14, 2009, when she returned to this flat, she found the locks changed. She alleged she was thrown out of the house at 11 pm.
She then filed a domestic violence case against Vikram with the Charkop police for throwing her out of the house. Sandhya then moved to a flat in Jogeshwari, which was arranged by her daughter.
On November 24, 2009, Vikram sent her a legal notice claiming she had forged and fabricated a Power of Attorney (POA) given by Vikram and attempted to sell Vikram’s Kandivli flat.
On December 29, 2009, she was arrested and jailed till January 2. She was released on bail on Tuesday by the Dindoshi sessions court.
According to Sandhya’s advocates Samsher Garud and K R Mehta, in the police reply that is part of the court record, the police had said that during investigations, two men who had stood witness to the POA told the police that the POA had been made and executed by Vikram. Garud said the witnesses also identified Vikram before the deputy commissioner of police.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Sanjay Banerjee said he did not want to comment as the investigation is still in progress.
