VADODARA: A city-based builder has filed a complaint of cheating against notorious criminal, Aslam Bodiyo on Monday. Bhailal Shah filed the complaint with the detection of crime branch (DCB) after Aslam forcibly took over a shop in the complainant’s commercial complex on Ajwa Road.
Shah told the police that Aslam, who met him in 2011, wanted to purchase one of the shops in Amber Complex. Shah sold the shop to Aslam at Rs 7.25 lakh. Aslam paid Rs 1.50 lakh initially and gave two guarantee cheques for the remaining amount. When Shah asked for the remaining money, Aslam threatened to kill him. Aslam also prevented Shah from depositing the cheques.
“Aslam took over the shop and named it as Lucky Finance. He used to carry out all his criminal activities at this shop. Earlier, we recovered 30 vehicles from the vicinity of the shop that were forcibly taken over by Aslam and his gang,” said police inspector V J Rathod. Rathod added that Bodiyo has been booked under sections 406, 420 and 385 of the Indian Penal Code.
