New Delhi: As the Battle for Tripoli reached a climax in mid-August 2011, former Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi lost his life and all his properties were  forfeited by rebels. After the end of Gaddafi's era, investigations were done to compute his total wealth.






On 25 February 2011 Britain's Treasury set up a specialised unit to trace Gaddafi's assets in Britain.

As per reports In January 2002, Gaddafi purchased a 7.5% share of Italian football club Juventus for US$21 million, through the Libyan Arab Foreign Investment Company.

As per reports Gaddafi had an Airbus A340 private jet, which he bought from Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia for $120 million in 2003.

Operated by Tripoli based Afriqiyah Airways, and decorated externally in their colours, it was used in 2009 to repatriate Lockerbie bomber Abdul Baset Ali al-Megrahi, on his licensed release from prison in Scotland.

The plane was captured at Tripoli airport in August 2011 as a result of the Libyan civil war, and found by BBC News reporter John Simpson to contain various luxuries including a jacuzzi.

Here take a view at some of his properties:
