Unitech Property Fraud Matter
Unitech Property Fraud Matter

Unitech Limited, established in 1971, is one of India’s leading Real Estate players. Ajay Chandra is the director of this realty firm called Unitech. Ajay Chandra and his brother Sanjay Chandra have been in Tihar Jail since 2017 in another case related to siphoning of homebuyers’ money.

Recently, he has allegedly usurped around 8 acres of land that belonged to a retired Delhi government officer in sector 47 of Gurgaon. It is said that Ajay Chandra forged documents and developed Universal Tower II, a housing society, on the victim’s land.

Facts of the Case

It has been alleged by Sarup Singh Thakran, aged 70, who is a retired special executive magistrate with the Delhi government, that 8.5 acres of his family’s agricultural land located in Jharsa village was transferred by Ajay Chandra to his realty firm Unitech through forged general power of attorney and sale deed. Chandra was helped by his employees and commission agents in forging the same without the consent of Thakran. The property had been registered with the office of the sub-registrar in Seelampur, Delhi in May 2014 while Thakran was on government duty.

This was after Thakran had entered into an agreement with Unitech as a firm, and not Chandra personally, in January 2004 for the joint development of a housing society on the respective land. But Ajay Chandra acquired license from the Department of Town and Country Planning through the forged GPA and sale deed, and developed Universal Tower II on the land. An FIR was registered against Ajay Chandra at the Sadat Police station under sections 419, 420, 467, 468, 470 and 120B of the Indian Penal Code, which relate to cheating and forgery.

Thakran further claimed that he received only Rs. 4 crore while signing the agreement, as against the market value of the land which is Rs. 62 crore. Moreover, he wasn’t even given the 10% share in the real estate project as he was promised in the agreement.

Aman Yadav, ACP (Sadar), has said that the matter is still under investigation. The general power of attorney and sale deed has been sent for forensic analysts, which will reveal the truth.
