Maple Group top official will be held soon: Kirit Somaiya

Pune: After filing a complaint with the government over the 'misleading' housing advertisement by the Maple Group, BJP MP Kirit Somaiya on Saturday said that soon the accused builder will be behind bars for allegedly duping people.

"The housing scheme by Maple Group is bogus and the developer, through a well-designed scheme, tried to present his project as government's project. However, we immediately raised the question and within 48 hours, a case was registered against him (developer)," Somaiya said on the sidelines of a lecture on 'Fight against Corruption'.

When asked about the action against Maple Group CMD Sachin Agarwal and other accused, he said that he had met Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) and police officials and sought details of the case. "Police are investigating the technicalities of the case and will be taking the decision about his (Agarwal's) arrest soon," he said.

Meanwhile, officials of the economic offences wing of Pune Police said that as per the latest information, approximately 32,000 people had registered in the housing project. "We have discovered one more bank account, which has been frozen," said an officer.
