Nagpur: Special investigation team (SIT) procured three-day custody remand for alleged land mafia Dilip Gwalbanshi on Wednesday in a case of Rs 50 lakh extortion registered a few days ago at Koradi police station. Gwalbanshi is already behind the bars in other cases.

Gwalbanshi and seven others were booked at Koradi police station under supervision of SIT officials following a complaint received from Haji Bashir Ashrafi. In his complaint, Ashrafi had claimed that Gwalbanshi and his gang had threatened him to cough up Rs 50 lakh to claim possession of the land he had purchased.

SIT has also appealed to citizens to approach them in case they have faced any problem with Gwalbanshi and his associates like Vedprakash Wadhwani and Sondaji Chauhan.

Having conducted repeated searches at the offices of Chauhan and Wadhwani, SIT had recovered property documents worth crores. Police have now thrown their door open for complainants to come forward with grievances against Wadhwani and Chauhan.
