Dawood Ibrahim Biography, Relationship & Career
Dawood began his career in crime by engaging in fraud, robbery, and petty offenses in his early teens and later joined the gang of Baashu Dada, a local don. He later split in the gang and created his own gang together with his elder brother Shabir Ibrahim Kaskar in the late 1970s. After Shabir was killed by the rival Pathan gang, he became the only boss of his group, called the D-Company. He was then mostly involved in gold smuggling, real estate, extortion, and drug trafficking. He fled India for Dubai in 1986 after being desired by the Mumbai Police for the murder of Samad Khan. In the next years, he further expanded his gang with the support of his second-in-command Chhota Rajan, with his group with over 5000 members and earning tens of thousands of crores of rupees in revenue annually in the early 1990s.
He was appointed by the Indian authorities as one of the masterminds from the 1993 Mumbai Attacks. Following the strikes, he fled Dubai for Karachi, where he is thought to be alive to this day.
The United States Department of the Treasury designated Ibrahim as a terrorist within its global sanctions program, effectively prohibiting US financial entities from working with him and seizing assets considered to be under his control. The Department of Treasury retains a fact sheet on Ibrahim which contains reports of his syndicate with smuggling routes from South Asia, the Middle-East and Africa shared with and used by terrorist organization al-Qaeda. The fact sheet also stated that Ibrahim’s syndicate is included in the large-scale shipment of narcotics in the United Kingdom and Western Europe. He’s also thought to have had connections with al-Qaeda pioneer Osama bin-Laden. In the late 1990s, Ibrahim traveled to Afghanistan below the Taliban’s protection. The syndicate has always aimed to destabilize India through riots, terrorism, civil disobedience, and pumping fake Indian currency notes into the country.
Currently, Ibrahim’s criminal actions are terror financing, drug trafficking, gunrunning, extortion, and money laundering. He’s also heavily invested in property in Karachi, Dubai, and India. Ibrahim is thought to control a lot of the hawala system, which’s the most commonly used unofficial system for moving money and remittances away from the perspective of official agents. Ibrahim was connected to the finances of increasing attacks in Gujarat by Lashkar-e-Taiba. His crime syndicate spreads across Asia, Europe, and Africa, with over 40 percent of its earnings coming from India.
