Nobody turns up at auction of gangster's property in Ggn
Gurugram: No one came to buy wanted gangster Sube Singh's property, which was put on auction on Tuesday by the district administration.
This, despite the assurance that cops would ensure the safety of anyone who buys these properties, which were attached by Gurugram police in January as a way to curb the financial muscle of proclaimed offenders in the district.
This was the first attempt by the district administration to auction the property of a gangster in the city.
The two pieces of land — 1.3 acres in Bar Gujjar village near Manesar and 0.8 acres in Manesar industrial area — are registered in Singh's name and their estimated market value is Rs 6 crore, police said.
Police said that they had received information that one person was keen to buy these properties.
"We received input that one person was willing to buy but he did not make it to the auction on Tuesday. The report has to be submitted in the court on March 3 and further orders will be passed accordingly," deputy commissioner of police (Manesar) Rajesh Kumar said.
Manesar tehsildar Pradeep Deswal said the auction was organised at Bar Gujjar village and Manesar, but no one turned up.
"We waited till 4 pm and the teams were at both locations but it seemed that people were even scared to come to see the auction process," he said.
Since these properties remain unsold, the government can choose to rent them to generate revenue, the police said, adding that the court will now decide another date of the auction or the further process.
There are 782 criminals that were found to be absconding in Gurugram. What has been even more brazen is that most of the criminals escaped from the clutches of law after getting bail.
Now to get hold of the criminals the Gurugram police has devised the mechanism to attach the properties in Gurugram. The process is all set to kick off on the first day of 2019 itself.
Criminals from as many as 6 dreaded gangs are presently operating in the city.
These gangs include Manjeet Mahal gang, Kaushal gang, Kishan gang, Hayatpuri gang, Sandeep Gadoli gang and Binder Gujjar gang.
