A group of residents belonging to Panchsheel Greens 2 landed in soup for raising slogans against theft incidents during a protest. The slogan, ‘Loota Ghar Kharidwa Kar, Bad Me Loota Chori Karwa Kar,’ did not go down well with builder and they issued legal notices against the protesters.
The legal department of the Panchsheel Greens issued a notice alleging attempt to tarnish builder’s reputation. In the notice, the residents have been asked to tender an apology for their remarks made against the developer or have to face defamation suit.
“That you the notices in order to harm the reputation of client (developer of Panchasheel Greens developer), pasted posters on the walls in the area surrounding society made ill-mannered comments and these comments were made with malafide intention. We give you notice to publish an apology within 7 days from the receipt of this notice, falling which our client shall be constrained to file a defamation suit of Rs 25 lakh,” notice issued to the residents read.
City Spidey had earlier reported that following burglaries incidents in three flats in the society last week of December, scores of flat owners launched a protested march alleging poor security management in the society.
Miffed with burglaries during broad day light in the society, flat owners had raised a serious question on the security system of the society and alleged that the issue was raised at several occasions but the management department did not pay heed on it. The doors of the three flats, located in different towers, were broken when the flat owners not present.
“We pay for every service provided by the management. How can we feel safe in the society when thefts have occurred in broad daylight. Leaving flats for office can invite troubles for us. We can’t even raise our voices against the management,” said a resident of Panchsheel Greens 2, on condition of anonymity.
Apart from lapses in the security management in the society, maintenance charge was another key issue between the residents and the management. Flat owners have opposed management’s demand to pay maintenance charges in advance for two years.
Talking to City Spidey, Anuj Chowdhary, director of Panchasheel group said, “Notices have been issued by our legal department for using inappropriate words during the protest.”
