he green Hyundai Accent sedan was burnt by Swami Chakrapani and Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha activists.

A car which Dawood Ibrahim purportedly used, was on Wednesday 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 Hyundai Accent sedan was burnt by Swami Chakrapani and Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha (ABHMS) activists at the Green Park farmhouse near Kanavani village culvert here in Indirapuram at around 2 p.m. 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 U.P. in charge of ABHMS Sanjeev Saxena said. Addressing the workers, Chakrapani said 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 a toilet which will be stationed at the Hindon 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.
