LUCKNOW: Cricketer Ravikant Shukla, who led the Indian team in the Under-19 World Cup tournament in 2006, has accused the directors of Yazdan Builders of duping him of Rs 71 lakh in the name of allotment of two flats in a residential complex at Prag Narain Road in Hazratganj.
He said that the builders had claimed that the project was approved by UPRERA and the Lucknow Development Authority, but the building was declared illegal and demolished by LDA last year.
Notably, the five-storey Alaya Apartment, which collapsed recently claiming three lives, was also constructed by Yazdan Builders.
Lodging an FIR, Shukla said that he had booked two flats in a project, Alaya Heritage Apartment, in 2015.
He said the builders claimed that the project was being constructed according to the norms laid down by UP RERA and that the LDA had also approved it. The builders promised to give possession of the flats by 2018-19.
“The construction of the project got delayed and the wait got longer due to coronavirus pandemic. In 2022, we came to know that the construction has been declared illegal and the building has been demolished. I came to know that the documents of the building were forged,” he claimed.
“When I demanded my money back, the owners refused to do so. They abused me and threatened me with dire consequences. Whatever I had earned in my life as a cricketer, I gave everything for the flats,” he said.
SHO, Hazratganj, Akhilesh Mishra said that an FIR had been lodged against Sayam Yazdani, Fahad Yazdani, Aleem Chaudhary, Sharafat Ali, Shruti and Fazi Ahmad.
