Officials did not specify if the property had been built on agricultural land or government land.

“A boundary wall that had been built around the house was demolished using JCBs,” said an official, requesting anonymity.

Meanwhile, the gangster’s family alleged that the authorities had not given any prior notice and claimed that the house was their ancestral property.

Ravi, a relative of Gujjar, said, “This action is completely illegal. This is Lal Dora land. No prior notice had been given to us by the authorities. We got to know of the action when we saw the police and the bulldozer approaching the house. This is not an encroached property. This is our ancestral property and we have all the documents. At least 15 people including Sube Gujjar have a stake in the property. We will approach the court.”

Omvati, another relative, said, “The authorities offered no explanation when we asked them why they were demolishing the wall. No notice was given to us. We will take legal recourse.”

Mohammad Imran Raza, MCM commissioner, did not respond despite repeated calls and a text for comment.
