Noida police attaches gangster's properties worth nearly Rs 1 crore

The Gautam Buddh Nagar police on Tuesday attached a gangster's movable properties worth nearly Rs one crore, amid its crackdown on the regional mafia, officials said.

The clampdown in the western Uttar Pradesh district began on July 4 following Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's directives in the wake of eight policemen being gunned down by gangster Vikas Dubey and his henchmen in Kanpur, they said.

"Eight trucks belonging to Satbir Bansal were attached on Tuesday. The cost of the trucks is pegged at Rs 96 lakh," Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, Greater Noida, Vishal Pandey said.

The crackdown is being carried out chiefly under Section 14(1) of the Gangsters Act, which allows attachment of illegal properties, to effectively check activities of gangsters, mafias, criminals and their associates, he said.

The district police had attached Bansal's properties worth Rs 64 lakh, Rs 29.70 lakh and Rs 60 lakh on July 10, 8 and 6, respectively, according to previous official statements.

So far, properties, including land and vehicles, worth around Rs 16 crore belonging to members of the dreaded Sundar Bhati and Anil Dujana gangs, among others, have been attached as part of the clampdown, the officials said.

The district police said it would continue to take action against the gangsters.
