Swami Chakrapani, the right-wing Hindu leader who has successfully bid for a green Hyundai Accent car belonging to fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim at an auction in Mumbai this month, has revealed that it would be burnt publicly in Ghaziabad near Delhi today. As stated to PTI over telephone from Delhi, Chakrapani said, "Our organisation has decided to burn the car publicly at Indrapuram in Ghaziabad between 1 PM to 2 PM.”

Chakrapani the national president of 'All India Hindu Mahasabha' and also one of the petitioners in the Ram Janmabhoomi case, said, "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." At an auction of Dawood's properties held in Mumbai on December 9, Chakrapai bid successfully for the for a mere Rs 32,000.

He further added, "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.” The car, which is in a battered condition, was transported to Delhi from Mumbai a few days ago. Adding further he said, he didn't need any security as he was not afraid of threats. He has however filed a complaint with Mandir Marg police in Delhi on December 11 when he had received threat calls.
