Police teams from six police stations of Greater Noida were roped in to ensure the action. Rajesh Kumar Singh, DCP (Zone 3) told TOI that the unaccounted properties of organised gangs are being seized under the provisions of the Gangster Act, “It came to light that the construction was illegal and since the accused who claims to be the owner is already booked under the Gangster Act, we are legally empowered to attach the property,” he said, adding that it will be ensured that the accused do not resume construction in the future.
