Gurgaon, Sep 21 (IANS) Senior officials of Empathy Infrastructure & Engineering Private Limited and a few others have been booked on charges of cheating and fraud involving Rs 9 crore, the city police said on Wednesday.
A case under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections relevant to hatching of conspiracy, cheating, fraud, and preparing and using fake papers was registered at Sector 40 police station after a court issued an order for registering an FIR.
Ajay Sharma, a resident of Park Centre in Sector 30 on Mehrauli-Gurgaon (MG) Road, approached the court as the police had refused to lodge an FIR against the accused firm.
Sharma, also a builder, said in his complaint that the accused company had signed an agreement to build a few projects for his firm in 2014-15, but it never did it.
Police officer Devi Charan told IANS, “We have started an investigation and are issuing notices to parties to the case to join the probe.”
