Detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI's) land fraud unit recovered household items linked to the demolished Ksh80 million posh Nairobi mansion belonging to Niraj Shah and his wife Avani Shah.
Reports indicated that the police traced the items to a roadside shop located in the Central Business District (CBD).
According to the detectives, the shop owner escaped moments before the operation commenced.
Speaking to the press, Avani Shah decried that the recovery of items did not salvage the massive loss caused by the demolition of her house.
She added that some of the important documents such as title deeds were yet to be recovered.
"Even though recovering these items, what does it do? Nothing. It doesn't build my house again, I'm still homeless, I'm still suffering, it's two weeks. Files, and title deeds are missing so everybody is now worried," she lamented.
In addition, a warrant of arrest was issued against three company directors claiming ownership of the demolished mansion. Police launched a hunt for the suspects who went into hiding.
Four directors of the company were linked to the demolition and subsequent damage of property worth Ksh18 million.
Recently, the fourth director of the company, who had been in police custody, was released on a Ksh2 million cash bail.
This was after he was arraigned and denied the charges levied against him.
The demolition of the Ksh80 million home followed a dispute between the Shah family and the real estate company at the centre of a one-acre prime parcel of land located along School Lane in Westlands, Nairobi.
The development came days after the High Court in Nairobi released the auctioneer who effected the eviction and demotion of the Ksh80 million home.
The auctioneer was arrested and presented in court before being released on a cash bail of Ksh200,000.
While issuing the orders, the judge ordered the auctioneer to report to the investigating officer whenever he is summoned.
