Bhojwani had falsely claimed ownership of two plots on which Dilip Kumar's bungalow is built.
The legendary 96-year-old actor Dilip Kumar's wife Saira Banu on Sunday, through a tweet, requested to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the issue involving builder Samir Bhojwani, following the latter's release from jail. Bhojwani had falsely claimed ownership of two plots on which Dilip Kumar's bungalow is built.
Dilip Kumar's bungalow is located in the upscale Pali Hill area of Bandra.
On Sunday, Banu's request was shared on Kumar's official Twitter account. "Request from Saira Banu Khan: The Hon'ble @PMOIndia Shri @narendramodi Sir, Land Mafia Samir Bhojwani released from jail. No action taken despite assurances by CM @Dev_Fadnavis . Padma Vibhushit betrayed, threatened by money and muscle power. Request meeting with you in #Mumbai," the tweet read.
The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Mumbai Police had registered a case of cheating against the builder for allegedly trying to grab Dilip Kumar's bungalow after a complaint was filed by Kumar and Banu in December, 2017.
According to the complaint, the builder was falsely claiming ownership of two plots — CTS nos C-1395 and C-1396, at Pali Hill in Bandra, which the actor claimed he bought in September, 1953, for Rs 1.40 lakh. The builder also allegedly threatened them.
Bhojwani had then secured anticipatory bail from the court over Dilip Kumar's property dispute case.
In April, Bhojwani was arrested by the EOW after another case of alleged land grabbing of property at Pali Hill was registered against him by a member of the trust.
After the offence was registered, a team of EOW sleuths raided Bhojwani's residence in Bandra from where they seized weapons, including knives and daggers.
