A 48-year-old pastor, who had been allegedly illegally running a school inside a tiny room in a Dharavi chawl since 2008, was arrested Saturday for cheating and forgery, said the police.
The police said they had been probing the case since February, when the room’s owner filed a complaint alleging that his tenant had forged documents to get a BEST electricity meter in the room registered in his name. As per case details, R Rajkumar, who lived in a fourth-floor apartment at Girnar Tower in Goldfield Compound in Dharavi, took the 440-sq ft room at Parsi Chawl in Dharavi on rent in 2000. The landlord had given Rajkumar the room to run a church, but found later that he was instead running a school.
“In 2008, Rakumar submitted forged documents to the local BMC ward office and got the BEST electricity meter of the room registered in his name. He then began to operate a school from within the room,” said Ambadas Pawar, senior inspector, Dharavi police station. The complainant then tried to expose the illegalities by approaching the police with documents proving his ownership in February this year. “During the course of our inquiry, we found that Rajkumar prepared forged documents to illegally gain permission to run the school,” said Pawar. Rajkumar has been remanded to police custody until Monday.
