Illegally built house of Gangster Sube Singh Gujjar was demolished by the Municipal Corporation in Manesar on Thursday. The four-storey building was seen coming crashing down on the land.
The alleged house owner is Sube Singh Gujjar, a gangster who is presently lodged in Bhondsi jail, police said. The property was valued at Rs 4 crore and was demolished as part of a first-of-its-kind drive to raze down illegal properties of gangsters, in accordance with orders from the state government, a police official informed. Gujjar is a close aide of gangster Kaushal who was arrested from the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport on May 1, 2021.
He was wanted in more than 42 criminal cases, including murder, attempt to murder and extortion in Gurugram, Delhi, Palwal, Nuh and Rewari.
A Rs 7.60 lakh bounty was also declared for information leading to his arrest. Kaushal and Gujjar parted ways following a financial dispute.
