MUMBAI: Acting on the complaint of actor Saira Banu, the Khar Police has filed an FIR against builder Sameer Bhojwani and others for allegedly cheating her husband Dilip Kumar to the tune of Rs 250 crores.
Saira Banu had complained that the builder was trying to illegally occupy Dilip Kumar's property in Bandra. She also said that they were repeatedly harassed by the builder in connection with the case.
Recently, she had written to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in which she accused the city builder of threatening them to take over the family's house.
In her letter, Saira Banu had written that the builder has been putting pressure on her and repeatedly threatened to 'illegally' take over the property. She alleged that he has also created fake documents and is using his influence in political circles to seize the house.
The property was bought in 1953 by Dileep Kumar. In 2008, a contract was signed with Prajita Developers to redevelop this property. Complications led to the matter being taken to the Supreme Court and on September 30, the apex court ruled that the property be handed back to Dileep Kumar.
"I say I am a senior citizen and to harass me and my family, the accused has come up with this conspiracy to usurp the property belonging to me," she wrote.
