The demolition action began on Friday and continued on Saturday, DDA officials said. While the lawn and temporary structures were razed on Friday, the main building was demolished on Saturday, they said. “Continuing with its exercise to reclaim government land over which unauthorised occupation and illegal construction has been done, DDA demolished the farmhouse of Ponty Chaddha spread over 10 acres in Chhatarpur worth 400 crore,” said an official.

Officials said the farmhouse had a sprawling manicured lawn with a main building and a couple of outhouse sheds.

Ponty Chadha and Hardeep died in a shootout in 2012 following an argument between the estranged siblings over property. Hardeep shot at Ponty, following which the latter’s security officer shot Hardeep, police officers said.

Ponty Chaddha owned the Wave Group, known for its high stakes in liquor and real estate, especially in Uttar Pradesh.
