Ekta is enraged beyond words. “How can they do this to us in a city like Mumbai? We bought the land after four land searches. Then we bought the land and got all the proper documents. We also gave an ad in the paper saying, if anyone has any claim over the land, please come forward. Having done all that some builders have come forward to claim it"s their land. Shockingly they came to our land yesterday with cops and took our people to jail.The cops have illegally removed our people when we"ve all the papers. Because the other builder is a Dada they"ve put my people in jail."
Ekta"s dad rushed to the troubled spot yesterday evening,
although it wasn"t safe. Admits Ekta, “It"s quite unsafe. It was
open dadagiri and my dad was unstoppable. That landowner who claims
that the property we bought is his, has property all around that
place. So he is shameless about his bullying. How can they bully my
people out of MY land! We"ve all the papers in order. As a
responsible company Balaji was very careful before buying the
property. How can the cops trouble us like this?"
Ekta and her family are planning to sue the police.
Says Ekta, “The police"s attitude is shocking. I"m going to create a huge uproar about this. RNA builders are using all kinds of muscle power to get us out of our own land. If this can happen to Balaji, can you imagine what happens to ordinary people?" Says Balaji lawyer Sandeep Singh Sidhu, “There is a status quo order by Mumbai High Court. Without honoring that particular order, RNA played quite dirty. All their papers are forged. Their claims have been thrown out of Thana court and Mumbai High court. I think RNA approached the local police and they tried to dispossess us forcibly at around 5 pm on Tuesday. The way they"ve gone about it anything could have happen."
