Veteran Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kishan who was last seen in Anurag Kashyap's 'Mukkabaaz' is in the midst of a real-estate issue. The actor has filed a police complaint against Jitendra Jain, Jinendra Jain and Ketan Shah, directors of Kamala Landmarc Group, who allegedly duped him of Rs. 1.5 crores.
The 49-year old had paid them the money to own a flat in a Juhu high-rise but the builders never handed him the keys for his new apartment. The police have now merged his complaint with another victim who too was a victim of this scam and was robbed of Rs. 6.5 crores. Several others were also duped over this Juhu project. Collectively, the actor and Sunil Nair have duped of Rs. 8 crore by JV Group, a joint venture of Kamala Landmarc group and another realty firm.
An EOW official stated, "We combined their complaints together and lodged an FIR under sections 409, 420 and 120B of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and under sections 3, 4, 5, 8, 13 and 14 (1)(2) of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act (MOFA) against Jitendra, Jinendra and Shah, for criminal conspiracy, cheating, breaching of trust and violations of housing law MOFA."
The three directors of the construction company were arrested in 2016. They were in judicial custody since then. Advocate Bipin Joshi, the representer of the construction company said that out of the 23 cases filed against the firm, it is given bail for over 15 cases.
