MHADA chief vigilance officer moves HC to get FIR quashed
Mumbai: The Chief Vigilance Officer of
Maharashtra Housing And Area Development Authority (MHADA) and
a junior vigilance officer have moved the Bombay High Court to
get a complaint of extortion against them quashed.
The Borivali magistrate`s court in February directed
the police to register offence against MHADA`s Chief Vigilance
Officer Jawahar Singh and Vigilance Officer Deepak Shinde.
The magistrate`s order came upon a private complaint
filed by one Phiroz Khan.
As per the petition filed by Singh and Shinde, Khan
filed a false complaint of extortion against them.
In 2009, as per the petition, Singh`s office received
at least four complaints against Khan. In one complaint, it
had been alleged that Khan sold off a plot allotted to one
Shivangi Khanolkar without her knowledge.
Other three complaints were of similar nature.
Singh then forwarded these complaints to respective
police stations and Khan was arrested.
Later, Khan alleged that one Shadab Mehdi approached
him when in jail, and said that cases against Khan would be
withdrawn if he paid Rs 11 lakh to Singh and others.
Khan then approached Magistrate against Singh and
Shinde, alleging extortion. Magistrate ordered investigation.
As per the petition, Khan`s allegations were false,
and magistrate should not have entertained them. Petition will
be heard by High Court on May 4.
