There have been many scams in Navi Mumbai but none of the magnitude where in a politician who has been a top Minister in the state cabinet was directly involved in cheating buyers. But the same has happened in Kharghar in the scam now known as the HexWorld scam. The HexWorld project is one of the most ambitious projects of in Navi Mumbai till date. Built under the banner of Devisha Infrastructure Pvt Ltd, two of the directors involved in cheating buyers are Pankaj Bhujbal and Sameer Bhujbal, the son and nephew respectively of former PWD minister Chhagan Bhujbal.
It is not hidden from anyone that Chagan Bhujbal was the face of the project since it was launched. A former RBI Manager, Mumtaz Sayyed reiterated that she invested in the project only because of Chagan Bhujbals’ association with it. There are over 2000 buyers who have booked flat 8 years ago in the controversial project that has come to a stand still. Most of the buyers have availed loans. Other aggrieved buyers shared their frustration and worries.
Like has become the trend, all aggrieved customers united using powerful social media platforms and are now using these platforms to fight for justice. Aggrieved buyers wants to take over the land to build their homes or appeal that the government should appoint an agency to build their homes for them. Unfortunately for the buyers of HexWorld, the media focus is only on the ongoing battle between Chagan Bhujbal versus BJP MP Kirit Somaiya. The buyers are now planning to unite under one forum and file a case in court for justice
