Former Mumbai Mayor and Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Kishori Pednekar and three others were booked in a cheating case on Saturday for allegedly acquiring flats built under the Maharashtra government’s Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) in suburban Worli, a police official said.
The case has been registered against Pednekar and three officials of a private firm for alleged cheating and forgery in connection with the acquisition of the flats located in Gomata Janata SRA society.
”As per the complaint filed by SRA official Uday Pingle, former mayor Pednekar had acquired a flat, which was in the name of one Gangaram Boga, in the Gomata society. The flat was allotted to Boga in 2008 but Pednekar mentioned it as her property in the 2017 Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation polls,” he said.
A commercial unit allotted to another person in 2008 was declared by the private firm as their office while filing registration documents with the Registrar of Companies (RoC), the official said quoting the FIR.
