Pujit aggarwalRealty firm Orbit’s MD, Pujit Aggarwal was arrested on Monday, 12th September, for a fraud and cheating case registered by a firm called Capri Global Capital.
The firm, Capri Global Capital had booked 3 flats in Orbit’s Sakinaka project called Orbit Residency Park.The said project was mortgaged to Life Insurance Corporation in 2008 itself .

According to the law, Pujit Aggarwal was supposed to put 2.5 crores paid by Capri Global Capital in an escrow account,but had used it himself instead.

Meanwhile another person called Meena Jain (widow of Rajendra jain) filed an FIR with the police that Pujit and others had duped her of a flat in Orbit Heights at Nana chowk (Tardeo).

Meena’s husband (now deceased) Rajendra Jain had a room in Ramesh Bhavan, Irani chawl at Nana Chowk when Pujit approached the landlord Pradeep Goragandhi with a redevelopment proposal.

Under the proposal,Rajendra Jain was supposed to get a flat in the Orbit heights project measuring 675 sqft carpet area in return for his acceptance of Pujit’s proposal.

They entered into an agreement in 2004 and paid stamp duty and registration for it.But by 2010,Pujit told Meena Jain that the flat could not be allotted to her due to some problems and promised to allot another one instead.
