The Enforcement Directorate (ED) conducted raids at nearly 10 locations including Nagpada in South Mumbai, linked to wanted fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, in a money laundering case on Tuesday.
According to information, the raids were conducted based on the case registered by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) registered by the ED against Dawood Ibrahim.
The NIA has registered the case under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) against Dawood after learning that he has been spreading terror activities and has been pumping money through hawala channels to finance those working for him to create unrest across India. Recently, the presence of the Dawood Ibrahim gang was found in Punjab, indicating that Pakistan’s ISI has started using the underworld to spread terror in Punjab.
The ED officials began conducting raids on people associated with Dawood Ibrahim and his late sister Haseena Parkar. Dawood is believed to have set up a vast business empire since he fled India in the 1980s. Earlier this month, security agencies had arrested Abu Bakar, a 1993 Mumbai serial blast accused and a close aide of Dawood from the UAE after 29 years of manhunt.
Dawood Ibrahim is a wanted terrorist for his role in the 1993 serial Bombay blasts cases. He is the son of a police constable who was with the Mumbai police. He started his crime life with gang wars in the Dongri area of South Mumbai. In Dongri, he got in touch with gang members of Haji Mastan and his gang war began. Ge was first arrested for a robbery case in the 1980s, and later his criminal activities increased manifold. He became more powerful and dangerous due to the fights between the Haji and the Pathan gangs, comprised mostly of migrants from Afghanistan.
Dawood and his associates fled to Pakistan before the 1993 Mumbai blasts, which left 257 people dead. He has been linked to multiple terror organizations and is also believed to be helping narco-terrorism through his hawala network. The sources said that a politician from Maharashtra is also under the scanner in a money laundering case being investigated by the ED.
