Mumbai: Metropolitan Magistrate court, Vikroli issued notice to Mumbai police for alleged inaction in the case registered against partners of Huges Real Estates Developers LlP for allegedly having cheated their business partner Shreenathji Group for allegedly misappropriating proceeds of sales of one of their joint venture Tilak Green View Co-operative Housing Society.

Last year, Tilak Nagar police registered a complaint against the partners of Huges Real Estates Developers LLP following a court directive based on a complaint by Shreenathji Developers. The accused, who had entered into a joint venture with Shreenathji Developers, were involved in the redevelopment of Tilak Green View Co-operative Housing Society since February 2010.

Rajesh Mehta, the promoter of Shreenathji Developers and later a partner in Huges Real Estate, alleged that their project suffered due to the implementation of GST and demonetization. Mehta accused the partners of misappropriating funds amounting to Rs 10 crores.

Following the registration of the case, Mehta, through his lawyer Marmik Shah, petitioned the court against the police's inaction. The plea, filed in the first week of last month, states, "Even though more than 4 months have passed since the registration of the FIR, the officers of the Tilak Nagar Police Station have neither frozen the Bank Accounts of the Accused persons/firms nor have they taken any steps to arrest the Accused."

Mehta has claimed that he reached out to various senior officials, from the Deputy Commissioner of Police to the Mumbai Police Commissioner, regarding the alleged inaction. However, receiving no response, Mehta, through his lawyer, approached the magistrate court.

"The main accused persons are highly influential and have previously managed to influence investigations. It seems they are continuing to do so even after the FIR was filed. Despite clear evidence of diversion and misappropriation of significant sums, no action seems to have been taken by the officers of the Tilak Nagar Police Station," states Mehta's plea.

The Magistrate court, which initially instructed the police to register the case, has now issued a notice to the Mumbai police to address Mehta's allegations of inaction.
