Kanpur Development Authority (KDA) vice-chairman Arvind Singh said properties built by Haji Wasi, Shabi, Saleem and H S Malik without taking proper clearance have been sealed.
This came a day after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath instructed officials to take stern action against the accused in the June 3 violence so that no one dares to disturb the peace.
The officer alleged that Haji Wasi, Shabi, Saleem and H S Malik provided financial support to some of the accused in the Kanpur violence.
The seized properties have been handed over to Station House Officers concerned, Singh told PTI.
“A request has been made to the police commissioner to instruct the SHO to lodge an FIR if anyone dares to start construction by entering the sealed properties,” he added.
Uttar Pradesh has been rocked with protests across its several districts over remarks against Prophet Mohammad made by now-suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma.
The first such major protest took place in Kanpur on June 3, which saw the demonstrators trying to shut down markets and clashing with people by hurling petrol bombs and stones.
Since last Friday, similar incidents of violent protests have been witnessed in eight districts of the state.
The state bulldozed properties in Saharanpur, Prayagraj, and Kanpur districts drawing opprobrium from opposition parties and civilians alike, which termed the move extra-legal.
