Bhojpuri star and a well-known Bollywood actor, Ravi Kisan, is in no good mood these days. The actor has filed a police complaint against Jitendra Jain, Jinendra Jain and Ketan Shah, directors of Kamala Landmarc Group, who allegedly duped him of Rs 1.5 crores. The actor had paid them the money to own a flat in a Juhu high-rise but the builders never handed him the key for his new apartment. The police have now merged his complaint with another victim who too was a victim of this scam and was robbed of Rs 6.5 crores.

Sunil Nair, a Versova-based financial consultant, was also duped by the same real estate company and for the same Juhu project. Collectively, the actor and Nair were allegedly duped of Rs 8 crore by JV Group, a joint venture of Kamala Landmarc group and another realty firm. Nair had initially bought an apartment in Santacruz by the same builders for Rs 3.10 crores. But since the occupation certificate (OC) for the project was not received, Nair was offered a flat in the builder’s other project Siddhant Project in Versova. After having a look at his new property, Nair decided to book two flats and paid an additional 3 crores to the builders.
Nair was given the allotment letters and was promised the flats in a year, but the builder kept delaying the sale agreement. When the victim confronted the builders about the same, they justified the delay by saying that the construction has been stopped owing to some Coastal Regulatory Zone (CRZ) clearance, which will be resolved soon. But the nightmare started when he realised that the Siddhant project was, in fact, a redevelopment project and the original society members had appointed one JV Properties Private Ltd as the developer for the project in 2012.

“We combined their complaints together and lodged an FIR under sections 409, 420 and 120B of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and under sections 3, 4, 5, 8, 13 and 14 (1)(2) of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act (MOFA) against Jitendra, Jinendra and Shah, for criminal conspiracy, cheating, breaching of trust and violations of housing law MOFA,” said an EOW official. The possibility of more victims cannot be ruled out, the officer added. The three directors of the construction company were arrested in 2016 and are in judicial custody since then.
Advocate Bipin Joshi represents Kamala Landmarc Group and he said out of 23 cases against the company in the high court, it had been given bail in over 15 cases. “We need co-operation from the home buyers so that those projects which are left incomplete can be completed. Home buyers do not have any association. And the police are registering cases after cases. Our clients can resolve matters once they are out of jail. We have moved a petition requesting clubbing all the cases so that a one-time solution can be reached.” The actor is yet to comment on this issue, though his spokesperson confirmed the news but is unaware of its latest development.
