GHAZIABAD -- A car which Dawood Ibrahim purportedly used in his heydays was today set ablaze by a right wing outfit here with a poster of the fugitive gangster pasted on its windscreen, a fortnight after the ramshackle vehicle was auctioned in Mumbai for Rs 32,000.

The green-coloured Hyundai Accent sedan was burnt by Swami Chakrapani and Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha (ABHMS) activists at Green Park farmhouse near Kanavani village culvert here in Indirapuram at around 2 PM with Dawood's posters pasted on its windscreen.

The car was won by Chakrapani at an open auction for Rs 32,000 on December 9 in Mumbai, All India secretary and UP incharge of ABHMS Sanjeev Saxena said.

Addressing the workers, Chakrapani said that he wanted to convert the car into an ambulance but due to threats from the underworld, he decided to burn the car publicly.

The car's wreckage will be utilised to make toilet which will be stationed at Hindan river crematorium if the district authorities permit him, he said.

Otherwise, it will be used as a mobile toilet for public usage to spread a message among the masses against terrorism, he added.

District Ghaziabad police was present at the protest site but did not intervene into the matter as the farmhouse falls within jurisdiction of Gautam Buddha Nagar district.
