The Supreme Court on Thursday allowed Delhi police to arrest and interrogate in custody Amrapali Group CMD Anil Sharma and two directors on a complaint that home buyers of their various housing projects were cheated and duped of their funds.

The top court, which is seized of several pleas of home buyers seeking possession of around 42,000 flats booked in projects of the group, also ordered the attachment of the personal properties of the CMD and directors Shiv Priya and Ajay Kumar.

The trio has been under detention of the Uttar Pradesh police and kept in a hotel in Noida since October 9 last year by the apex court for not complying with its orders.
