A Mumbai-based social worker has allegedly claimed that Omkar Realtor, a builder firm offered him a sum of Rs 11 crore to keep quiet on their violation of developer's project at Hanuman Nagar in Parksite Vikhroli.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, social worker Sandeep Yeole said, he did a sting operation on the builder and had proof of the violations.

Yeole displayed Rs 40 lakh in the press conference he had allegedly received from the builder as an advance to keep quiet. He said Omkar Realtor has given him Rs 1 crore so far. He told that he spent the remaining Rs 60 lakh on the project.

Omkar Realtor spokesperson said, “Rs 40 lakh was paid to Yeole as advance rentals for 88 slum tenants to be rehabilitated by the developer. Omkar is undertaking a slum rehabilitation scheme and the money was meant for the rent for their alternative accommodation.”

Omkar Realtors spokesperson has denied the allegations and said that the social worker was misleading slum-dwellers. The spokesperson said, “The defamatory attempt by Yeole to present twisted facts is purely a matter of ulterior motives and his failure to influence the slum community from going in for self-redevelopment.”

Yeole said, “The builder said I should keep my mouth shut by accepting my share of the money, Rs 11 crore.” He added, “Kaushik More, MD of Omkar, has told us that he will take care of others. We have everything recorded.”

Yeole said, “We, through RTI Act, procured documents and found that the builder is not eligible to carry out this project and despite this, he is using his muscle and money power to press on slum-dwellers. The builder does not have permissions, 80 % of slum-dwellers have not agreed to redevelopment.”

Yeole said that he has decided that he would donate the Rs 40 lakh to the CM's relief fund.
