September 13, 2023

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana high court has issued notice to the Haryana government, Congress’s Samalakha MLA Dharam Singh Chhokar, his two sons and Mahira Buildwell Private Limited (formerly known as M/s Czar Buildwell) following a plea for probe into FIRs against Chhokar for cheating by a special investigation team.

Mahira Buildwell Private Limited is owned by the Chhokar family.

According to the plea, Chhokar has been booked for cheating and forgery at different police stations in Gurgaon, but the local police are hand in glove with him and not taking any action in the case.

Justice Vinod S Bhardwaj issued the notice after hearing a petition filed by Anil Kumar and other residents of Dhanwapur village in Gurgaon district. The respondents have been asked to submit a reply on the issue by December 18.

According to the petitioners, there has been inaction against Chhokar and his sons despite registration of a number of FIRs in the state following a complaint by them and other marginal farmers as well as the department of town and country planning, Haryana.

It has been stated that the petitioners are marginal farmers and owners of land measuring 83 kanal, 11 marlas (10.443 acres in Dhanwapur). The area comes under Sector-104 of Gurgaon.

As per the petition, Chhokar and his company had approached the petitioners as builders, saying they had constructed a number of real estate projects in Gurgaon and NCR region and have a good name in the market. They invited the petitioners to enter into a collaboration agreement for development of an affordable housing project on the above-mentioned piece of land.

The petitioners entered into a collaboration agreement dated December 28, 2020, with M/s Czar Buildwell Private Limited (now Mihira Buildwell).

At the time of the agreement, the petitioners were given Rs 11 crore as non-refundable security and possession of the land was handed over to the company owned by Chhokar. The housing project consists of 1,450 flats and commercial space. As per the agreement, the landowners had ownership of 35% of the project and the developer had ownership of 65% of the project.

However, the company sold the 35% flats belonging to petitioners, without any intimation or consent, and even received advance from a number of allottees. It has been submitted that the developer company had applied for grant of license for setting up affordable group housing in the department of town and country planning and obtained it by submitting forged documents/forged signatures of the petitioners.
