Bollywood’s King of Romance, Shah Rukh Khan is in trouble over allegations that he forged documents to buy land in Alibaug. According to TV reports, SRK’s former chartered accountant and confidant Moreshwar Ajgaonkar, has alleged that Shah Rukh asked him to forge the documents to buy Alibaug property, Deja Vu Farms Pvt Ltd.
On Monday, the IT dept attached Deja Vu Farms Pvt Ltd at Alibaug. The attachment notice was issued under the prohibition of Benami Property Transactions Act (PBPT) in December. The other forged documents include a record of rights that shows the existence of a bungalow pre-1991. In fact, photographs from Google Earth Satellite Photograph for the year 2003 show no such bungalow. Meanwhile, the IT officers have confirmed to India Today that the 90-year-old Ajgaonkar has admitted that “he was working on the instructions of Shah Rukh Khan”.
According to a senior I-T official, Ajagaonkar in his statement to the department has admitted using forged documents and 7/12 extract on the instructions of Shah Rukh. The 7/12 extract is a document maintained by the state’s revenue department that contains the date of purchase, name of the owner and cultivator, area, type of land among other information. However, the income-tax department believes that around Rs 50 crore was invested in constructing the bungalow.
A probe into the exact amount and source of the funds is also being carried out. Relevant documents, bank details, company’s financial transactions have been sought from Deja Vu Farms.
