“Yet To Meet PM”: Saira Banu After Request On Dilip Kumar Property Case

Mumbai: Saira Banu on Tuesday said she is yet to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the release of builder Samir Bhojwani, who had falsely claimed ownership of two plots on which Dilip Kumar’s bungalow was built, and would go to Delhi if needed.

On Sunday via Dilip Kumar’s official Twitter account, Ms Banu had requested a meeting with the prime minister in the wake of Samir Bhojwani’s release. The former actor said she was unable to meet the prime minister when he was on a one-day visit to Maharashtra on Tuesday but she plans to follow up with the matter.

“I did not meet the prime minister here as he has been busy. But I have learnt that his office has asked people here to look into the matter. I have tweeted about it. “I will meet him in Delhi if needed. I have no idea how I will follow this up. But I will follow it up,” Ms Banu, 74, told PTI.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday said he will speak to Mr Kumar, 96, and his family to allay their fears over the property issue involving Samir Bhojwani. Mr Kumar’s bungalow is located in the upscale Pali Hill area of Bandra.

Earlier this year, Ms Banu had approached police and lodged a complaint against Samir Bhojwani. In January, the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai police had registered a case of cheating against the builder for allegedly trying to grab the bungalow of the veteran actor.

The police officials suspected that Samir Bhojwani forged certain documents to grab the property. After the offence was registered, a team of EOW sleuths raided Samir Bhojwani’s residence in Bandra from where they seized weapons, including knives and daggers. Samir Bhojwani was arrested by EOW in April.
