Mumbai: Saira Banu on Tuesday said she is yet to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss about the release of builder Samir Bhojw-ani, 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 Mr Kumar’s official Twitter account, Ms Banu had requested a meeting with the Prime Minister in the wake of Bhojwani’s release.

 

The former actor said she was unable to meet the PM when he was on a one-day visit to Mah-arashtra on Tuesday but she plans to follow up with the matter.

“I did not meet Mr Modi 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,” said Ms Banu (74).

Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fad-navis on Monday said he will speak to Mr Ku-mar (96) and his family to allay their fears over the property issue invo-lving Bhojwani. Mr Ku-mar’s bungalow is loc-ated in the upscale Pali Hill area of Bandra.

Earlier this year, Ms Banu had approached the police and lodged a complaint against Bhojwani. In January, the Economic Offences Wing 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 Bhojwani forged certain documents to grab the property.

 

After the offence was registered, a team of EOW sleuths raided Bh-ojwani’s residence in Bandra from where th-ey seized weapons.
