AHMEDABAD: A share broker from the Satellite area of the city on Friday filed a complaint with Sarkhej police stating that an NRI developer has cheated him of Rs 1.04 crore. The share broker said that he had paid the money to the developer’s father to buy four bungalows in a housing scheme in Juhapura. Amit Parikh, 56, a resident of Vibhuti Apartments in Satellite, said in his FIR that he had wanted to invest some money in 2013. He said that his friend from Paldi, Kamlesh Bhagat, introduced him to a builder from Juhapura, Ayyubkhan Pathan. Pathan showed Parikh a housing scheme in 2013, mentioned the FIR. Parikh liked the scheme and decided to buy four bungalows in it for which he paid Rs 96 lakh cash and Rs 8 lakh through a cheque to Pathan. Parikh said in his FIR that Pathan’s wife Sahidabano was aware of the deal as he gave the money in her presence. Even their son, Affaq, who was studying in the US at the time, was aware of the deal, said Parikh in the FIR. In 2017, Pathan changed the name of the scheme but assured Parikh that he would give him four bungalows. On May 25, 2021, Pathan died suddenly after which his son returned to the city from the US. Parikh went to meet Affaq, who had taken over the business, in July and inquired about his four bungalows. Affaq told Parikh that he had done the deal with his father and not with him, so he was unaware of it. He told Parikh that if he wanted to buy a house, he would have to pay a higher amount. Even Sahidabano said she had no knowledge of Parikh’s deal. Later in July, Affaq went back to the US without returning Parikh’s money. Parikh eventually approached Sarkhej police which has filed a case of cheating and breach of trust.
