niranjan hiranandaniMumbai: Police registered an FIR against eight persons, including real estate tycoon Niranjan Hiranandani and a police officer, following a Bombay High Court order on a criminal complaint filed by a woman here.

In the complaint, the 28-year-old woman has accused Hiranandani, Managing Director of Hiranandani Group, of getting the residents of Jai Bhim Nagar slums in suburban Powai forcibly evicted by slum lords whose men were also alleged to have attempted to destroy evidence of a shrine in the area earlier this month.

She has pressed charges of criminal intimidation and conspiracy against the real estate baron.

The woman also alleged she was raped by two men on June 14, but claimed that Powai police did not take note of her complaint. She claimed her medical examination was not carried out.

After the victim approached high court it directed Crime Branch to register an FIR and probe the matter.

“As per the high court directive, we today registered an FIR against eight persons, including the builder and Inspector YS Jadhav,” said Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime), Sadanand Date.
