The Mumbai police said Wednesday that the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) has expedited its probe against a builder accused of trying to grab a bungalow of actor Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu.

A case has been registered against builder Sameer Bhojwani at the suburban Khar police station on Saira Banu’s complaint, an official said.

Saira Banu had recently taken to Twitter to ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi for help in the matter.

Bhojwani is accused of forging title documents of the star couple’s Rs 250 crore-worth bungalow in Pali Hill area here and registering it in someone else’s name.
