Vasna-based builder dupes NRI couple, sells their property

Updated: May 15th, 2024

A complaint has been filed with Chandkheda police against a builder by an NRI (non-resident Indian) couple living in the USA for allegedly selling two flats bought by them.

As per the complaint, Deepak Shah and wife Meenakshi, residents of Florida, USA, had purchased two flats through Vasna-based builder Narendra Gohil.

The NRI couple paid ₹36.80 lakh to Gohil and booked both flats.

However, despite the full payment, the builder delayed the issuance of apartment letters, a due certificate, and possession, according to the complaint.

The couple approached one of their relatives, Praful Maniyar (77), a resident of Mumbai, to look closely into the matter through a power of attorney (POA).

Suspecting that the couple has been duped, Maniyar inquired further and found out that Gohil has sold both of the flats to a woman named Parul and has handed over the possession.

Maniyar reached out to the Chandkheda police station and filed a complaint against Gohil.
