KANPUR: Police kickstarted proceedings late Saturday to attach properties of slain gangster Vikas Dubey’s financier, Jaikant Bajpai, and his three brothers in posh Brahmnagar locality and other areas of the city. While Bajpai was jailed soon after the Bikru ambush, his brothers surrendered at Kanpur Dehat court on Friday.
Notices were pasted on houses of Jaikant and his three brothers — Rajnikant, Ajaikant and Shobhit Bajpai — who were booked under Gangster Act on Tuesday. Police executed the proceedings with beating of drums.
Earlier, Kanpur SSP Preetinder Singh submitted a report to the district administration, stating Jaikant Bajpai and his three brothers had illegally amassed wealth and funded criminal activities of slain don Vikas Dubey, following which the DM ordered attachment of multi-crore assets. This includes four houses and bungalows in Brahmanagar worth Rs 20crore, two flats in Arya Nagar of Rs 8 crore, a duplex in Panki of Rs 2 crore, house in Swaroop Nagar worth Rs 4 crore and plots in Singhpur and Bithoor worth Rs 7crore.
On Sunday, officials sealed Bajpai’s 111/481 Brahmnagar residence worth Rs 5 crore after evacuating three tenants in a post-midnight operation. Then a portion of another house in the same locality, which was bought seven years ago was also sealed. Then House No. 107/298 worth Rs 3 crore was sealed in which Bajpai’s mother and other family members lived. Later, a 4-crore bungalow in which Bajpai’s wife Shweta and their children would stay was sealed.
“We have attached four immovable properties of Jaikant. Other properties would be attached in next few days,” said tehsildar Atul Kumar. Cops from three police stations along with PAC jawans were deployed during the sealing drive.
Earlier, Nazirabad police initiated action against Bajpai under Gangsters Act as he was operating a gang with his three brothers and was involved in securing unauthorised possession on government land and indulged in money laundering. After Bajpai’s arrest, his three brothers went into hiding. Police had announced a Rs 25,000 reward on each of them before they surrendered in court.
