New Delhi, Dec 23: A green Hyundai Accent car recently was auctioned at Rs 32,000. The significant of the car was that it belonged to underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
Now, the present owner of the car, Swami Chakrapani announced that he would burn the car in public. The car would be burnt in Ghaziabad on Wednesday, Dec 23.
Chakrapani, who claims to be the national president of All India Hindu Mahasabha, earlier had announced that he would use the car as an ambulance.
Later he allegedly received death threats from Dawood's aides. Hence, Chakrapani decided to dare the underworld don, who is considered as one of the most wanted terrorists in India.
Speaking about his decision of burning the car in public, Chakrapani was quoted as saying, "Our organisation has decided to burn the car publicly at Indrapuram in Ghaziabad."
"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,
"Earlier I wanted to covert the car into an ambulance, but when D-company's (Dawood gang's) henchmen threatened me to be ready to face the consequences, I decided to give a reply to him in his own language. I am going to torch it in full public view," he said.
The present owner of the car earlier had asserted that he did not want any protection or security. However, he later filed a complaint with Mandir Marg police in Delhi on Dec 11 after receiving the threat calls.
