FIR was filed against us, because we did not pay Bribe

Reported on March 20, 2015 from Noida , Uttar Pradesh  ι Report #54703

We are innocent Flat buyers who had paid 95% of the cost of our flats through our hard earned moneys two and half year back. Skytech Construction Pvt. Ltd. (the Builder) had promised us to deliver the possession of our respective flats by April, 2013 and till date we have not received our flats, but have been paying huge EMIs for our home loans.

On 28th Feb, 2015 we some of the buyers visited Builder's office and demanded to get written confirmation on the date of possession and details of the other charges that Builder was claiming from us. The officials of the builder clearly denied to give any information, rather they misbehaved with us (although there were some female buyers like me) and pushed us out of their office.

Then we collectively moved to Sector - 63, Noida Police Chowki to report the incident. The Chowki In-Charge there called the builder officials and they had a confidential discussion for half an hour. After the discussion, the Chowki In-charge said that he would not be able to lodge our FIR, because FIRs can only be lodged at the Police Station.

Then we all the Buyers moved to Sector - 71 Police Station and lodged our complaint there before the Station In-Charge (Ms. L. S. Chouhan). She promised us that she would take some strict action against the builder and assured us to return back to our homes.

After two days, when we wanted to check with her about our complaint she said that our complaint can not be registered because this is a civil dispute. Also she promised to mediate the matter at the police station.

On 14th March, 2015 she organised a meeting with the Builder officials, wherein she was actually representing the Builder and agreed with all the unjustified points that Builder officials put forth at the meeting. It was quite evident from her changed attitude that she would have got a handsome favour from the Builder.

Subsequently, the Builder filed a FIR at the same police station and that was registered against some of the Buyers who are now being harassed by the Police and are being asked bribes to be spared from these actions.

Although my name is not there in the FIR, but I know that the people against whom this fake FIR has been filed are really under mental pressure to defend the false charges which they have never committed.

If Police supports the criminals by taking bribes, then where the common man should go??
