This is how the scam happened in Pushpavihar
In 1990, the Mazdoor Panchayat Griha Nirman Sanstha started developing Pushp Vihar. In 2006, the institution’s land was sold to Keshav Nachani for two crores. He gave a check of 50 lakhs and opened a fake account and got the check cashed, while also took mortgage loan of the land with the bank. Due to which the land got entangled and the eligible members kept getting worried for the plot.
