A court had last week, sent them to seven-day police custody in connection with three FIRs, one of which alleged that they duped a man, who booked a flat in the company’s ‘Unitech Verve’ project in Greater Noida, of Rs 16.77 lakhs. Ram Narain Aggarwal, a retired government employee, alleged that the firm floated a residential project ‘Unitech Verve’ in 2006, in which he booked a flat. The apartment was scheduled to be delivered by December 2009, but he has not yet got its possession, he alleged. The other two FIRs also alleged non-delivery of flats to home buyers and fraud committed on them by promoters.
The Chandras have been accused of offences under sections 120B (criminal conspiracy), 420 (cheating) and 406 (criminal breach of trust) of the IPC. Recently, the Supreme Court had refused to grant interim bail to the Chandra brothers till September 15, 2017, in one of its Gurugram-based projects, till the customers’ grievances were redressed.
