Homebuyers Cheated By Amrapali Group Insist That Former Cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni Be Made An Accused


[ By Bobby Anthony ]

Homebuyers allegedly cheated by the Amrapali Group have urged that former Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni should also be made an accused, according to the first information report (FIR) filed by the Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing on November 27.

The Amrapali Group stands accused of diverting thousands of crores of rupees paid by home buyers.

The FIR has named Amrapali Group's Chairman and Managing Director Anil Kumar Sharma, group officials Shiv Priya, Mohit Gupta and others as the accused.

The FIR which has been filed in response to a complaint by a certain Rupesh Kumar has charged the accused with criminal breach of trust, cheating and criminal conspiracy under Section 406, Section 409, Section 420 and Section 120 B of the Indian Penal Code.

According to the FIR, the Amrapali Group’s bosses “spun attractive dreams to lure customers and their money, making skillful use of cricketer Dhoni for this purpose. He was made the Amrapali Group's brand ambassador with the sole objective of using his name to attract people to deposit their hard-earned funds in the housing projects”.

The complainant has clearly mentioned in the FIR that Amrapali Group had amassed Rs 2,647 crore for its various projects from the eager home buyers. However, this huge amount was diverted here and there, while the housing projects languished unfinished.

According to the FIR, the Supreme Court had also held that the Amrapali Group launched various projects to deceive and cheat people.

The complaint has alleged that in the scam running into thousands of crores of rupees, the involvement of Greater Noida Authority officials cannot be ignored.

The Authority had given the Amrapali Group plots in exchange of a 10% premium, and after this, it turned a blind eye to how the company cheated people. The Group kept on taking money from its customers, but never paid the Greater Noida Authority which remained silent all the time, the complaint has mentioned.
