A builder by the name of Shirish Rangrao Chavan (age 38) (Suraj Enterprises) is absconding after a case of cheating was registered against him by Prakash Raut at the Kalamboli police station.
The builder sold a flat in his building Suraj Apartment on plot no 90 at Sector 34,Kamothe to Prakash Raut.Later he found out that the flat was already sold to someone else in July 2011.
The builder Shirish Chavan is absconding and his phone switched off.Two other people also claimed to have been cheated by the builder in the same way.In all,3 flats were sold to 6 people.
This scam is growing by the day as more than 150 people are reportedly affected by the scam.In all cases,the builder took between 2 and 5 lakhs from each buyer and finally sold his plot to another person and absconded.

    I was booked flat no.303 at SURAJSARA ,PLOT NO.68,Sector-35,Kamothe in Sept2010 by giving Rs.5 Lakhs to Suraj Enterprises,Vashi by cheque as booking amount. The builder has sold the same flat 303 to another one person. But now the builder had sold the said plot to third party.Alogwith me two my friends are also cheated by the same builder.

    • I believe there is already a police case going on.Join forces with other people who have been cheated.Form an association and then fight the battle.Go to police stations and find out who are other people like you and join forces with them.
