174 Bhagtani victims write to CM, demand departmental enquiry against EOW cops

Mumbai, 24th October, 2018: Yesterday, an open letter physically signed by 174 victims of Bhagtani builders, was sent to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Home Minister Dr Ranjit Patil, and top police authorities. The letter demanded departmental enquiry against investigating officers who avoided filing chargesheets against companies that duped over 2,500 families of their life savings, and decisive actions to bring back the absconding company directors, namely Mukesh and Laxman Bhagtani.
We started the campaign for collecting physical signatures on 6th October, and during the next two weeks, copies of the Open Letter were kept for signatures by nine victims at their residences and offices in Mumbai, from Mira Road to Bandra, and Versova to Vikhroli.

Text of the letter sent is reproduced below:

Shri Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister & Home Minister, Maharashtra
Dr Ranjit Patil, Minister of State for Home (Urban), Maharashtra
Shri Dattatreya Padsalgikar, DGP Maharashtra

Let us write Open Letter to CM & CP about Bogus Chargesheets

Dear Friends,

As you are aware, we have made a huge difference by writing open letters in the past.

In November 2017, we wrote an open letter to Chief Justice of Bombay High Court, signed by 55 Riyo victims in Borivali National Park. As a result, Justice Badar was restricted from hearing Bhagtani's ABA matter by an order that said, "Not before any bench of which Justice A.M. Badar is a part".
In December 2017, we wrote an open letter to Maharashtra CM asking why Bhagtanis were still roaming free and enjoying life. This letter had physical signatures collected from 267 Bhagtani victims of different projects. Shortly afterwards, in January 2018, Diipesh Bhagtani was forced to surrender to EOW.

Friends, it is time for us to fire again. This time, the open letter has to be about defective chargesheets that the police have filed for Riyo and Serenity, and other projects also.  Let us send this letter to CM, Minister of State for Home, Director General of Police (Maharashtra), Pol…

Riyo & Serenity chargesheets: Is EOW betraying Bhagtani victims?

Mumbai, 4th October, 2018: Is the Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police deliberately going easy on Bhagtanis? Are the forensic auditors and Forensic Science Laboratory going slow? Eyebrows must rise that EOW's chargesheets of Bhagtani Riyo and Serenity, filed in April and August,are against Diipesh Bhagtani, and not against JVPD Properties Pvt Ltd and its directors Mukesh and Lakshman Bhagtani.

As long as they are considered only suspects, and not chargesheeted offenders, they remain safe from Fugitive Economic Offenders Act, Interpol Red Corner Notices, deportation to India, police interrogation and judicial custody. 
Two things that EOW cops often tell victims:
