The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has filed a charge sheet against terrorists Dawood Ibrahim, Chhota Shakeel and their associates. The NIA told in its chargesheet that terrorist Dawood Ibrahim and his associate Chhota Shakeel are again in the process of carrying out terrorist attacks in many places in India.
The NIA said that in the last 4 years, Dawood and his associates have sent Rs 12-13 crore to Arif Sheikh and Shabbir Sheikh through hawala in India. The National Investigation Agency has recently busted this plan of Dawood. According to the information received by the agency, the hawala money used to go to Dubai via Pakistan, from there to Mumbai and then to Surat to Arif Sheikh and Shabbir Sheikh. The NIA has arrested Dawood’s brothers-in-law Salim Fruit, Arif Sheikh and Shabbir Sheikh in this case.
Who is Dawood Ibrahim
Born on 26 December 1955 in Dongri, Mumbai, Dawood Ibrahim is a mafia, gangster, terrorist and drug smuggler. He is most wanted on several heinous charges including murder, extortion, target killing, drug trafficking and terrorism.
Investigating agencies believe that Dawood lives in Karachi, Pakistan, but the Pakistan government has denied this. Dawood Ibrahim has also formed a crime gang named D-Company. It was built in 1970 and is still running.
In 2011, Dawood’s D-Company was named at number three on the FBI’s ‘The World’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives’ list. Suspecting Dawood’s hand in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts, the Indian and US government had placed a reward of ₹ 25 million on him and gave him the status of a global terrorist.
Dawood’s Bollywood Connection
Dawood has also had a special relationship with the Indian film industry – Bollywood. The first name in this list is that of actor Sanjay Dutt. After the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts, Sanjay Dutt was arrested by the Mumbai Police for possessing illegal weapons. The Mumbai Police had also released Sanjay Dutt’s phone conversation with Dawood’s aide Chhota Shakeel. Some media reports claimed that Bollywood actor Salman Khan also had a good relationship with Dawood Ibrahim and already knew about the 1993 bomb blasts.
Bollywood actress Monica Bedi was also married to Dawood Ibrahim’s partner Abu Salem. Actor Anil Kapoor was also seen with Dawood Ibrahim during a cricket match, but this claim was denied by Anil Kapoor.
“Ram Teri Ganga Maili” actress Mandakini also reportedly had an affair with Dawood Ibrahim. It is also believed that Dawood Ibrahim has given Mandakini roles in many films with his identity. Akshay Kumar’s wife Twinkle Khanna denied her relationship with Dawood but according to media reports Twinkle Khanna and Dawood were spotted at Dubai parties.
Dawood’s hand in the murder of Gulshan Kumar!
Film and music producer Gulshan Kumar, who started Bollywood’s well-known music label T-Series (formerly Super Cassette Industries Limited), was murdered on 12 August 1997 outside a temple in Mumbai at 10:40 am.
Two assassins, Rauf and Abdul Rashid, tracked Gulshan Kumar for a month and a total of 16 bullets were fired at Gulshan Kumar on the day of the murder. Earlier, Gulshan Kumar had received two death threats on August 5 and 8, 1997 for refusing to pay the extortion money.
Dawood’s D-Company is believed to be responsible for this massacre. The police also accused film composer Nadeem Saifi of music duo Nadeem-Shravan of killing him over a personal dispute and he fled the country after the murder. However, on 9 January 2001, Abdul Rauf Merchant confessed to killing Gulshan Kumar.
Dawood Ibrahim turned film producer
Funding of the Bollywood film industry has been linked to Ibrahim and his D-Company. In the 1980s-1990s, D-Company produced several Bollywood companies and films. At that time, Dawood Ibrahim had close relations with Bollywood actress Anita Ayub and Mandakini. Bollywood producers Javed Siddiqui and Gulshan Kumar were allegedly killed by D-Company for refusing to pay the extortion money.
