Nearly six months ago, homebuyers of Jaypee Wishtown and Aman had lodged an FIR against Gaur who holds the position of chief executive officer at Jaiprakash Associates and managing director at Jaypee Infratech.
Earlier this year in April, home buyers of Jaypee Wish Town and Aman, which are residential complexes on the Yamuna Expressway, had lodged an FIR against Manoj Gaur, Chief Executive Officer of Jaiprakash Associates and Managing Director of Jaypee Infratech at the Yamuna Expressway Police Station. Cheating, breach of trust and conspiracy were registered against Gaur and his board of directors under different sections of IPC. However, till today the arrests have not been made.
Agitated home buyers have hence staged a protest today, outside the office of the senior superintendent of police, G B Nagar. Over a hundred buyers had gathered outside the SSP’s office in Sector-14 A , Noida around 11.30 am to raise slogans against the developer, UP police and the state and central governments.
Aggrieved buyers spoke to City Spidey about their woes.
A widow, who has purchased an apartment in the Wish Town project, said that five years ago she had sold her property in Indirapuram to manage the funds for this apartment. Incidentally both her daughters are married and she has no financial support. The fact that she is now living in a rented house in Gurgaon has made her wait for possession very agonising.
Pramod Kumar, another home buyer, said that the cops have not initiated any action for arresting Manoj Gaur. Incidentally, the apathy of the cops was evident as they chose to be busy in another event while the protestors were outside the office. This agitated them further.
Devendra Yadav, another home buyer told City Spidey that none of the police officials had come forward to meet the protestors. Consequently, home buyers have threatened the police that if there is no assurance about the arrests they would block the main road passing before the SSP office.
One police officer however did tell the agitated crowds that action against the accused has already been initiated on paper. He said that the process of identifying the signatures of the board of directors is in progress. The police officer further added that once the signature identification is done punitive action will be initiated. In his words, “This is a time consuming process as there are technicalities involved.”
