Mumbai: All India Hindu Mahasabha president, Swami Chakrapani, has received death threats by Dawood Ibrahim’s D-Company, after he targeted buying an eatery owned by him.
“I have no personal enmity with Dawood but I want to end the fear of terrorists by taking their properties and putting them to good public use. People like Dawood are cowards and no one should fear them,” he told Mail Today.
The eatery is located in Mumbai’s Bhendi Bazaar and Chakrapani claims to build public toilets in its place. Government is inviting bids for auctioning the eatery. Hotel Rounaq Afroz (Delhi Zaika) and five other properties owned by Dawood are all set to be auctioned on November 14.
Chakrapani had earlier bought Dawood’s car for Rs 32,000 in 2015 auction and torched it in Ghaziabad in full public view.
The Hindu Mahasabha president claims to have received threat message from Chhota Shakeel’s number that read: “I play with my targets like video games. Don’t be too happy. Wait.”
Last year, Delhi Police Special Cell had arrested four people for allegedly plotting to kill Chakrapani. The home ministry has provided Swami with Z-category security.
