The prime minister’s office (PMO) has brought cheer to a flat buyer, Sakarben Cheddah (72), who was allegedly duped by developer Ramesh Seth of Suresh Enterprises. The police in Tilak Nagar registered an offence of cheating and forgery late on Saturday after the PMO intervened.
Police are likely to send summons to Seth and may arrest him. He has been accused of mortgaging Cheddah’s flat to a finance company without her knowledge. “I am happy the PM gave us justice. We had been running from pillar to post but nobody heard us,“ said Sakarben. Two years after Sakarben bought the flat from Seth, officials of GIC Housing Finance told her that they wanted to seize the house as the builder had defaulted on a Rs 29 lakh bank loan.“The builder gave us a NOC so that we could take a bank loan. He told us in writing that the flat had a clear title,“ said Sakarben’s son Manish. We were shocked as I had invested my husband’s earnings in the flat. Seth never informed us that he had mortgaged it and taken a loan,“ added Sakarben.
