Dawood Ibrahim’s fearsome notoriety as a “global terrorist” and the draftsman of the greatest worldwide narco-terror+ syndicate does not appear to have hindered one of his henchmen, Khalique Ahmad, from taking as much as Rs 40 crore from the don himself.
As indicated by intelligence intercepts, Khalique should have grabbed Rs 45 crore from a New Delhi-based “safedposh” and sent Rs 40 crore to another country through hawala channels, in the wake of keeping Rs 5 crore as Dawood’s “exchange cost”.
The 40 crores apparently disappeared, along with Khalique.
Indian agencies learnt about the theft through tapped discussions between Jabir Moti, Dawood’s colleague in Pakistan, and Khalique Ahmad, who used to carry amongst India and Sharjah.
In the intercepts, Moti is heard telling Khalique that Dawood’s man, Razzak bhai, had raised the issue of misappropriation in the exchange. As indicated by Razzak, Khalique abused the name of Bade Hazrat (Dawood) to cheat the cash, creating a mark in the don’s notoriety.
The intercepts reveal that two of D Company “detectives” had even been sent from Delhi to Canada on November 26, 2015 to investigate the “fraud”. Khalique is currently believed to be hiding in Manipur, sources said.
Half of the Rs 40 crore was to be sent to a Panama bank and the other half was to be put resources into Dawood’s businesses abroad.
In the conversations, Khalique denies the embezzlement allegations and says there had been some confusion. He explains that “broker accounts” had been activated to stash the cash wired from India. According to Khalique, Razzak had made some mistake in depositing the money in these accounts due to which the money had been blocked. He assures Moti that the money in Panama should be intact.
Khalique further suggests the money could be withdrawn by him after he receives his credit/debit statements from the Panama bank. Or, he said, Razzak could take the money back into his account.
Soon thereafter, Khalique went underground proving that he had indeed conned Dawood.
The intercepts additionally affirm that separated from managing in arms, extortion, conflict diamonds and narco-terrorism, India’s most needed man and global terrorist Dawood Ibrahim had taken to tax evasion and controlled a piece of the dark cash racket in India.
His men get trade from entryway ventures out Delhi, Mumbai and different territories and wire it to Panama, Canada, Dubai and Pakistan through hawala channels. The cash is stored in mysterious financial balances or put resources into organizations. A piece of the cash is additionally contributed with Dawood’s syndicate itself.
Following a couple of years, the cash is directed back to India and came back to the proprietors as “white” cash. The D Company does this at a steep price. For instance, the transfer cost of the Rs 45 crore transaction was 5 crores.
“The operation was carried out under the aegis of the syndicate which was supposed to bring the money back to the country in 2015,” says an intelligence agency document.
