Sunil Chandwani, 53, a resident of Kalol, states that he began construction of apartments in the Paldi area in 2014. The accused, Praveen Jadhav, approached him in 2019 to buy a two-bedroom flat in the scheme. After a while, Jadhav approached him and sought a three-bedroom flat saying that he has family.
As Chandwani had finalized the deals for all the flats, he told Jadhav that he would be unable to allot him a 3BHK flat. This did not go down well with Jadhav who began abusing and threatening Chandwani.
Chandwani alleged in the FIR that Jadhav had broken a CCTV camera worth Rs 4,000 installed in the apartments and stolen another camera, worth Rs 25,000. Apart from this, he continued to do damage to the building.
On Tuesday, he called Chandwani and told that his flush was not working and asked him to repair it immediately. After a while, he called him again and said that the lift was not working. When Chandwani called a lift technician, he found that someone had cut wires of the lift.
After this, Chandwani approached Paldi police and filed a complaint for causing damage and criminal intimidation against Jadhav.
