A case has been registered against contractor Sunil Raka of Jyotinagar-based Raka's Lifestyle Club for breaching the AMC contract by running illegally hukka parlour and making illegal construction with the Osmanpura police station under pressure from Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) office-bearers. It may be noted here that Raka's Lifestyle Club was raided by police few months back for running hukka parlour without permission and some youths were also arrested during the action.
A non-cognizable offence was registered in this case by Osmanpura police station.
The civic body had signed a contract with M/s Shalaka Engineers and Raka's Lifestyle on BOT basis in 2007. According to the agreement, the contractor was not allowed to carry out any construction without AMC permission. But contractor Raka made some illegal constructions and also started hukka parlour, restaurant, dance club, sangeet academy without permission from the AMC. He had also fixed CCTV cameras near the swimming pool. After noticing these irregularities, the AMC office-bearers and general body had issued orders to the AMC administration to file case against Raka. The AMC authorities were dilly-dallying in filing case against the contractor, but at last they had to bow under the pressure of office-bearers.
Civic chief took the advice in this regard from the legal expert, but despite receiving the report from expert the administration was backing contractor for the past 15 days. Taking note of this, office-bearers met police commissioner Amitesh Kumar and requested him to issue order for filing the case against contractor. AMC deputy commissioner Ayyub Khan approached the Osmanpura police station on Sunday and filed complaint against Raka's Lifestyle Club contractor Sunil Raka and later police filed case against Raka. PI Gautam Phasale is investigating the matter further.
