NMC razes down another house illegally built by Santosh Ambelar

Nagpur: The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) continued to crack down illegally constructed properties of notorious gangster Santosh Ambekar on Monday, razing down its another house. Equipped with an excavator and tippers and aided by a heavy police bandobast, the Anti-Encroachment team started demolishing the Itwari based illegal constructions on Monday afternoon.
