Jailed Unitech promoter gets bail

    New Delhi (NVI): The Supreme Court has granted interim bail to Unitech promoter Sanjay Chandra who has been in jail for 3 years for allegedly duping over 500 home buyers in proposed housing projects in Gurugram.

    A bench headed by justice DY Chandrachud allowed Chandra’s plea where he had said that both his parents are Covid-19 positive and in hospital.

    Chandra and his brother, Ajay, were sent to jail in 2017 in connection with a cheating case registered against them by investors in Wild Flower Country and Anthea housing projects.

    Over 150 home buyers had lodged a criminal case against the firm in 2015 for its real estate projects, alleging that the builders had not delivered possession and cheated the public at large.

    The Chandra bothers are lodged in Tihar jail.
