Mumbai: A day after attaching 12 properties of former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh and his family in the metropolis, the city police have withdrawn the security provided to him even as an investigating team today visited one of his residences to complete some formalities.
"A police team visited the politician's Sai Prasad building flat here to complete some formalities today," said a police official privy to the investigation.
The Congress leader's security has also been withdrawn, the official said.
Meanwhile, the police will soon attach Singh's properties at Panvel in the neighbouring Raigad district and some more properties in Ratnagiri and Uttar Pradesh, sources said.
The officials are also going through the documents seized from Singh's premises, they said adding that details about his two licensed revolvers and over 400 live cartridges were being sought.
