Cheating complaint against real estate firm

The Halasuru police have registered a case against a real estate company for allegedly cheating a Bengaluru home buyer and denying him a flat which he had booked six years ago.

Vinod Kumar V., in his complaint to the police which he registered on Friday, said he had booked the flat in 2013 in a project on Bannerghatta Road that was being built by Nitesh Housing Developers. At the time, he paid ₹1 crore, but the company did not hand over the flat on the promised date.

After repeated attempts, Kumar approached the Real Estate Regulatory Authority – Karnataka, which, he told the police, ruled in his favour. The company was directed to give a compensation of ₹1,63,66,655.

“The complainant said that despite the ruling, the company failed to give him compensation,” said the police.

In April 2019, the CCB raided the company’s office on M.G. Road and seized several documents following a series of cheating cases filed against it.
