Story behind Sachin Tendulkar’s Tughlaq Lane bungalow?

Sachin Tendulkar

Master blaster and Rajya Sabha MP Sachin Tendulkar has been allotted a government bungalow in Tughlaq Lane.

The bungalow No. 5 on the elite street was incidentally occupied by former Delhi chief minister Sahib Singh Verma and former Haryana chief minister Bansi Lal’s son Surender Singh. Call it ill-fate, but both of them died in accidents.

While Sahib Singh Verma died on June 30, 2007 in a car accident on the Jaipur-Delhi Highway (NH-8), Surender Singh lost his life when his helicopter crashed near Saharanpur on March 31, 2005.

No wonder, rumours are abound that the bungalow is jinxed. But if Sachin decides to occupy it, his neighbour across the street would be Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, who stays at 12 Tughlaq Lane.

A first time MP is usually given a type 5 or type 6 bungalow. But, due to security reasons Tendulkar has been allotted a Type 7 bungalow spread across 7,000 square feet with five spacious bedrooms.
