Court rejects anticipatory bail for Lucknow builder in a case of cheating
The sessions court rejected the anticipatory bail application of directors of a Lucknow-based real estate company Welldone Technology Parks Development Private Limited. The company was booked for allegedly taking money from an investor for a unit in a commercial tower and later selling the same to another buyer.
A case was registered against Welldone Technology Parks Development Private Limited, its directors Umashankar Halwasiya, Sanjay Khurana and managing director Mukund Halwasiya, under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 120B (conspiracy) for cheating Suresh Kumar at Sadar police station.
Sanjay Khurana, Mukund Halwasia and Umashankar Halwasiya had filed an anticipatory bail application in the sessions court claiming that they were falsely implicated in the case even after paying the assured Rs 70 lakh to the complainant.
After hearing the contentions of both parties, additional session judge Balwant Singh in his order dated September 14 observed that the accused were first alluring the complainant for selling their property and then re-selling the same to third party at a higher rate.
