The son of a Thane builder who shot himself two years ago, has submitted an application to the court for the police to hand back the seized property and documents.

A police officer from Thane commissionerate said that in April, the builder’s son Abhishek had given an application for which the hearing was scheduled for Monday, but now it has been postponed to October 30.

On October 7, 2015, Suraj Parmar shot himself on the premises of a property he was developing. He left behind a 13-page suicide note, in which he had alleged harassment by Thane Municipal Corporation’s officials and corporators.

Parmar, the then Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industry (MCHI) president, had mentioned the names of four corporators who provoked him to take such a step.

He also wrote that he did not want these people to harass his family after his death.

According to the officer, corporators Najib Mulla, Vikrant Chavan, Sudhakar Chavan and Hanumanth Jagdale were arrested for allegedly abetting Parmar’s suicide, but later released on bail.
