Pakistan testifies Dawood aide’s ‘good character’ as UK rejects his bail plea for the second time

Jabir Moti, one of the top aide’s of the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was denied bail for the second time by a UK court even though Pakistan had extended support to his bail application calling him a man of ‘good character’. His extradition case would be heard on 19th October.

The letter from the Pakistani High Commissioner, Sahebzada Ahmed Khan, was submitted to the judge during his ongoing extradition case hearing at Westminister Magistrate’s Court in London in support of his application for bail, which was, however, not considered and bail was denied thereafter.

Though the UK court didn’t mention Dawood’s name, the judge hinted that Moti was a ‘senior member’ and ‘top lieutenant’ of a ‘leader’ based in Pakistan. Jabir was arrested from a hotel in London last month on money laundering, extortion charges and for trafficking narcotics. He was allegedly involved in investments in Dawood’s business and had regular financial dealings with Dawood’s wife, Mahajabeen, his son Moeen Nawaz and daughters Mahrookh and Mehreen along with son-in-laws Aurangzeb and Junaid (the son of former Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad).

Barrister James Lewis, representing Jabir, tried and used the letter from the Pakistani High Commissioner, which defended Jabir by calling him a ‘well known and respected businessman’. However, Judge Emma Arbuthnot was not convinced with the explanation and rejected the bail application.

Moti had arrived in the UK on business on a 10-year visa and was due to leave the UK on 22nd August.

In August we had reported, what was seen as a big diplomatic victory for India over Pakistan, a criminal court in Thailand has declared that Sayyed Muzakkir Muddassar Hussain, also known by aliases Mohammad Saleem and Munna Jhingra, a senior D-Company operative and a close associate of India’s most wanted underworld criminals, Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel to be a Indian National, which Pakistan had disputed, and ordered his repatriation to India within three months of the judgement.

Coming as a big blow to the underworld don, it was reported that Dawood Ibrahim’s aide Farooq Takla, against whom a Red Corner Notice was issued in 1995 in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, had been brought to Mumbai in March 2018 after being deported from Dubai.

This slow fragmentation of the kingpins dynasty will definitely be considered a welcoming move as Indian agencies have been painstakingly tracking the movements of Dawood Ibrahim for the last 23 years. Agencies like RAW, IB, CBI, NIA, police in Delhi and Mumbai and other agencies have worked all these years to stop Dawood’s illegal activities in India and abroad. The mastermind of the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai has been allegedly sheltered by Pakistan for the last 23 years.
