Revenge is sweet and five-month pregnant Mamta Sawant certainly knows that as she got the better of her ex-colleagues by unearthing a housing scam being run by them after they harassed her and her family.
Her twist with her former employer led her to open skeletons in the closet as she unearthed a scam involving proxy applicants for MHADA flats after they kicked her in the stomach and roughed up her husband last month.
According to an article in the Midday, Mamta Sawant, a former employee of Ghadge’s Hari Om Estate got into trouble with him after she quit the place and started her own real estate office close to his place. This ticked off Ghadge and he tried to dissuade people from renting office space from her and also physically assaulting her.This angered Mamta who decided to collect all the evidence possible against her former employer and hand it over to the MHADA vigilance department, as told to Midday.
Hari Om Estate, who also advertises itself as a resale and rental specialist for MHADA homes, is in trouble after they filled up forms in the names of a number of poor, illiterate people for the 2010 MHADA lottery.
“Over 200 of the names on the list of 539 have mobile numbers which are either the same as the mobile numbers displayed on the billboard of Hari Om Estates or which correspond to the numbers mentioned on company visiting cards against the names of its various employees”, the report said.
An investigation is being carried out by the vigilance committee of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA).
