GURGAON: An FIR has been filed here against realty major DLF and its top officials for fraud, police said on Tuesday.
The case has been registered at the Sushant Lok police station against the company's chairman, vice chairman, director and other senior officials under sections 420 (cheating) and 406 (breach of trust) of the Indian Penal Code on a complaint of the Park Place Homebuyers Association, police said.
"Looking at the seriousness of complaint, we immediately registered a case against several officials, including the chairman," Assistant Commissioner of Police Rajesh Kumar told IANS.
Despite repeated attempts, no one from the DLF was available for comment.
The association said in its complaint: "As per the written agreement that DLF had entered into with buyers, the realtor had to build an exclusive club with all modern facilities for home buyers and was supposed to hand it over to Park Place Condominium Association for its functioning, but buyers were betrayed by not giving charge to association."
"DLF started giving memberships to people living in DLF-5 and charged heavy fees," the complaint added.
