Khataus were one of the oldest mill owning family in Mumbai. Chairman Sunit Khatau wanted to sell his 125 years of Byculla land and moved the mill to 40 acre plot. But, Rashtriya Majdur Mill Sanghatan president Haribhau Naik opposed the sale. Because, it could lead lot of unemployment of mill workers and illegal land grabbing. The industrialist and mill owner Sunit Khatus took help of gangster Arun Gawli to sale his land. Gawli was promised 5% to 10% of the land sale from Sunit.
Some politics and old clashes between Gawli and Amar Naik resulted in murder of Sunit Khatau.
