New Delhi, March 23

The UP Police confiscated a building owned by Shaukat Ali, a close aide of jailed Samajwadi Party MLA Irfan Solanki under the Uttar Pradesh Gangsters and Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act. 

Shaukat Ali is currently lodged in Kanpur jail, while Sisamau MLA  Irfan Solanki is in Maharajganj District jail. 

The market price of the seized two-storied building, which is located in the Civil Lines area, is worth around Rs 30 crore, police added.

The police lodged the case under the Gangsters Act last December against SP MLA Irfan Solanki and Shaukat Ali, weeks after the MLA was arrested for allegedly harassing a woman and setting her house on fire in a bid to capture the property. 

Irfan Solanki’s brother Rizwan and another person were booked by the police under the Gangster Act. Police are yet to file a chargesheet in the Gangsters Act case. 

Meanwhile, police are also collecting details of other properties owned by Shaukat Ali and other accused in the case, including Irfan Solanki. 

The police have also collected details of several other properties of MLA Solanki, his brother Rizwan and their associates, including builder Shaukat, history-sheeter Mohammad Ejaz alias Ajjan, corporator Mannu Rahman, former corporator Mohammad Mursaleen alias Bholu, Mohammad Shareef and Israel alias Hatewala with estimated value of Rs 150 to Rs 200 crore.

The jailed MLA Irfan Solanki’s plot having an area of 300 square meters worth Rs 5 crore in Ghaziabad and a flat owned by MLA and his wife in Greater Noida were also seized.
