New Delhi: Terrorist and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's car, which was sold at auction to president of Hindu Mahasabha Swami Chakrapani, will be burnt on Wednesday.
Earlier this month, Chakrapani who had successfully bought the Hyundai Accent car (MH-04-AX-3676) for a mere Rs 32,000, had announced that he will burn the car publicly in Ghaziabad near Delhi.
“Our organisation has decided to burn the car publicly at Indirapuram in Ghaziabad between 1 pm and 2 pm," the Hindu Mahasabha leader told PTI.
“Burning the car would be symbolic of conducting the last rites of the terrorism that Dawood and his henchmen spread in the country, especially in Mumbai,” added Chakrapani, who claims to be the national president of ‘All India Hindu Mahasabha’ and is one of the petitioners in the Ram Janmabhoomi case.
The car, which is in a battered condition, was transported to Delhi from Mumbai a few days ago. Chakrapani said he didn't need any security as he was not afraid of threats, though he filed a complaint with Mandir Marg police in Delhi on December 11 after receiving the threat calls.
