The Gautam Budh Nagar senior superintendent of police on Wednesday directed the station house officer of Sector 39 to file an FIR under charges of criminal breach of trust against multiple promoters of the Amrapali HeartBeat City housing project located in sector 107.
Love Kumar’s direction comes after a group of homebuyers met the SSP at his office in Greater Noida’s Surajpur.
“Since the SSP has directed me to file an FIR, I will get the FIR lodged on Thursday under charges of criminal breach of trust as demanded by the buyers. I could not file it on Wednesday because a buyer Sanjeev Priyadarshi, who wants the FIR to be filed, could not reach police station due to some work in his office,” said AK Singh, SHO, Sector 39 police station.
Buyers alleged the builder diverted money collected from them and failed to resume construction at the site for the last four years.
“It is a criminal breach of trust by the builder because he took the total flat cost from almost all the buyers in 2014 itself. And even after four years of delay, the builder is nowhere to meet us and tell us when he will deliver the flats. Neither the government nor the builder is coming forward to explain why he failed to deliver after taking money. We want him to be arrested immediately and justice should be delivered,” said Punit Parashar, a buyer of Amrapali HeartBeat City.
Located in Sector 107, Amrapali HeartBeat City project was launched by Three Platinum Softech Private Limited, Pebbles Prolease Heart Beat City and Amrapali Group in 2009-10 with a promise of delivery in 2014. The project got delayed because of a land dispute between farmers and the Noida authority. The dispute was over by 2016-end. But the builder has not resumed construction.
Amrapali Heart Beat City, being built over 30,000 square metres, has 2,100 flats. Civil work has been completed.
Buyers want an FIR to be lodged against Amrapali Group CMD Anil Sharma, director Shiv Priya and other partners, including Ritik Kumar Sinha, Mohit Gupta and Nishant Gupta among others.
Buyers alleged that the builder has accumulated Rs200 crore that were not invested in the project.
NP Singh, legal advisor to the Amrapali HeartBeat City promotors, said,“We got land from the Noida authority in 2010 for the housing project in sector 107. We spent money collected from buyers on construction. And then the Allahabad high court stayed construction in August 2013. Since then the construction is stopped. We demand interest waiver for the period when construction was stopped by the court. Once the Noida authority gives us interest waiver, we will resume construction and start delivering flats.”
“We have exited from the project. Now it is the responsibility of the other two partners to deliver,” said Shiv Priya, director Amrapali Group.
