Heena Kalbag alleges she was attacked by Pradeep Sharma’s men in Jogeshwari
A fashion designer has alleged that encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma is involved in the incident in which she was attacked by two unidentified men at Jogeshwari on June 7.
According to the police, complainant Heena Chaitanya Kalbag, was driving towards her residence when two men on a motorcycle came towards her car and broke its window shield. They could not be identified as they were wearing helmets.
Assistant commissioner of police (DN Nagar division) Pradeep Suryavanshi said, “The security guard at Kalbag’s shop in Jogeshwari had informed her that an unknown person was visiting the shop and making inquiries about her for the past four days. She was allegedly attacked as she was returning after registering a complaint against the unknown person at Oshiwara police station. She suspects that the men who attacked her belonged to Pradeep Sharma and Ajmera of JJ Constructions.”
Although a case has been registered registered against the attackers, the First Information Report (FIR) does not mention Sharma’s name in it, said Suryavanshi.
According to the Mumbai police crime branch, in 2006, Kalbag had filed a complaint against Ajmera for cheating, extortion and land grabbing with the Anti-Extortion Cell (AEC). In that year, the builder had sold three commercial plots in their Shreeji Dham Society building in Andheri to Kalbag for Rs1.50 crore. The crime branch had then claimed that Ajmera along with his associate Bacchi Singh had threatened Kalbag to evacuate the plots. The police had arrested Ajmera and Singh.
The AEC has stated that Sharma and senior police inspector Ajendra Thakur of DN Nagar police station, where Kalbag had registered her complaint, had gone with her and played the part of mediators between the builder and Kalbag. Sharma could not be contacted for his comments.
