By Akela

VIKAS Oberoi, a controversial real estate developer in Mumbai seems to be habitual cheater. Earlier you read that how he cheated flat buyers to be ‘billionaire’ now read that how he misguided Honorable Bombay High Court committing offence of cheating and forgery of valuable government security like stamp papers.

Santosh Pathak (40), a businessman from Suburban Mumbai, a resident of Sankalp Building, Film City road; Goregaon (East) on June 19, 2014 complained (copy available with ABI) against Vikas Oberoi, Advocate Birendra Saraf, Hariyani and Company-Advocates and Solicitors and NRI Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi to Commissioner of Police, Borivali police station and Azad Maidan police station seeking immediate action.

“Months have been passed but police have not taken any action as all accused are influencer. I know Vikas Oberoi is multi billionaire and he can easily buy police and avoid action. I will move court soon seeking matter (stamp papers tampering) to be transfer to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI),” said Pathak.

Remember, the accused Vikas Oberoi is billionaire, Advocate Birendra Saraf is son of retired high court Judge and Secretary of Bombay Bar Association and Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi is engineer (Systems) of HSBC bank in Dubai, UAE.

According to complaint a Surat (Gujarat) based noted businessman Jagdishbhai Kanjibhai Patel (48) has booked a flat (A-1003) in Oberoi Splendor, JVLR, Andheri (East) projects in 2007. Then flat cost was Rs 1 crore and now Rs 4 crore. Even Patel has paid half (50%) of the flat cost but suddenly Oberoi cancelled the flat without any prior notice.

Oberoi has adopted (always adopts) mischief idea to earn the money. As the real estate market gone high up he created dummy flat purchasers like-Rahul Suri and Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi- and used bogus sale purchase agreement.

Since dispute arose, Jagdishbhai Patel filed suit (No-403/2012) against M/S Oberoi Reality and others. During the pendency of the suit Vikas Oberoi sold flat to one Rahul Suri (again controversial nephew of business tycoon Neeraj Kochar of Viraj industries a and as per information available on net Rahul Suri is prosecuted and convicted to one year imprisonment in the case of corporate espionage by Italian Court). Thereafter Rahul Suri sold the said flat to Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi of HSBC in sham and bogus transaction.

Acting on Patel’s suit, the Bombay High Court reserved (sealed) another flat (E-806) of same cost -same area, in same project. Vikas Oberoi cannot sell said flat till further court decision.

Oberoi’s stamp paper scam

At the behest of Vikas Oberoi 20 stamp papers- Rs 100 each- was purchased from Bombay High Court premises in May 2014. One of stamp papers was used for Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi. Actually the original stamp paper was on names of A A Lale and L A Lale. Oberoi applied whitener on names of A A Lale and Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi came to be written on it. Not enough, the Pin-Code Mumbai-1 also changed to Borivali, Mumbai-92. The stamp paper purchase date was also changed using whitener. This stamp paper (tampered) was executed for Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi’s power of attorney dated May 2, 2014. The accused personated as Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi before the Notary and got the power of attorney notarised.

Some sources from M/S Oberoi Reality side leaked the counterfeiting of stamp papers to Jagdishbhai Kanjibhai Patel. The source also told that on particular date-when stamp paper was notarised – Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi was in Dubai and not in Mumbai, India. He left India on April 23, 2013.

Patel’s close acquaintance Santosh Pathak sent email to Ajit Rajnikant Pancholi on his Hongkong bank’s email address demanding Xerox copy of Passport and Visa but Pancholi did not respond. On June 11, 2014 Pathak complained (copy available with ABI) against Pancholi in HSBC (Hongkong) bank demanding action.

Fearing legal action, Pancholi on June 19, 2014 gave an affidavit (copy available with ABI) to Bombay High Court that on particular date he was not in India. Also he has not signed any power of attorney. Pancholi also offered unconditional apology to Bombay High Court for his act. It means the affidavit was forged. The entire exercise of forgery was defended by Advocate Birendra Saraf, Ratnakar Mishra and Vikas Oberoi.

Despite repeated attempts there is no response from Oberoi’s side. Even, Oberoi’s spokesperson not responded our telephones and emails conversations. (Courtesy:
