The huge assets amassed by the dons-turned-realtors — Deepak Singh and Vikku Shukla — allegedly through unfair means are under the police scanner.
After the police headquarters decided to seize the ill-got property of criminals, a five-member economic offence wing team of the state police landed in Muzaffarpur on Sunday to assess the assets of the fugitives who ruled the crime world during the RJD regime.
The duo joined the real estate business in 2006 and started minting money, said senior superintendent of police (SSP) Rajesh Kumar, adding that he had asked all the station house officers to check if the dons had assets in their jurisdiction and submit details within five days.
The SSP told The Telegraph that the economic offence wing team was minutely verifying the alleged nexus between the two dreaded dons and former mayor Samir Kumar and former deputy chairperson of the district board Shah Alam alias Shabbu. The team has traced the bank accounts of the duo and their transactions with the dubious persons.
Its members also inspected the palatial buildings of Shukla under construction at Mithanpura, Kalmabagh Chowk and Bela Road.
They recorded the construction sites on video and interacted with the residents of the area, said Mithanpura police station house officer S.D. Singh.
The economic offence wing physically inspected the ancestral houses of Vikku and Deepak at Lalganj in Vaishali and Paroo in Muzaffarpur, respectively.
