The other properties (of Tito) on which the STF officials laid their hands include a real estate office, a petrol pump, a garment shop, a bike showroom, 17 tippers, a trailer and eight excavators.
Tito was arrested after he was injured in a police encounter near Chandikhole in Jajpur district on June 30.
Later, the Crime Brach had taken him on a five-day remand. However, the Kendrapara SDJM Court on Monday allowed it to take the gangster on another four-day remand.
