Investigation into fake currency racket reveals nexus between D-Company and Pakistan embassy

Dawood’s underworld enterprise, popularly known as the D-company had acquired massive wealth in many countries including the middle east and UK. Members linked to his gang still run a number of illegal businesses in India and Pakistan.

The investigation into the smuggling of fake Indian currency notes (FICN) has revealed a nexus between the D-Company and Pakistan embassy. Sources have revealed to IANS that India’s most wanted fugitive Dawood Ibrahim’s aides were in contact with a senior official of the Pakistan embassy in Kathmandu.

Dawood’s aides had regular visits to the embassy and were in touch with the defence attache. The aides were identified as the Ansari brothers, Yunus and Naseem.

Yunus Ansari was arrested by a special squad of Kathmandu police along with three Pakistani nationals from the Tribhuvan International Airport on May 24 after receiving intel from Indian agencies.

Ansari had bought in four suitcases that were loaded with fake Indian currency notes amounting to Rs 7.67 crore. The D-Company carriers had boarded a flight from Karachi on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Kathmandu. However, Ansari’s passport had Qatar stamps on his passport to conceal that he had come in from Karachi.

Sources have said that Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) of Pakistan has been printing Rs 2,000 Indian currency notes at a secret facility in Karachi. D-Company is only one of the distributors of FICN, a major bulk of which is smuggled into Bangladesh via the sea.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has made several seizures in the past few months ranging from West Bengal border to Gurugram in Haryana. Sources in Intelligence Bureau said the quality of FICN wasn’t good but would have entered the market had not been detected by UV counterfeit detection devices.

A local politician in Nepal, Basaruddin Ansari, is also reportedly known to have close contact with Dawood Ibrahim. Basaruddin runs a private institute, National Medical College which has been allegedly funded by Dawood in return of which The D-Company used a few safe premises of Basaruddin as a transit point for smuggling FICN into India.

The SSB Indian paramilitary force deployed on the Nepal border have been alerted after the recent seizures. The Customs (preventive) Wing in UP-Bihar has also been instructed to step up vigil along the border, particularly the commercial vehicles entering India.

Dawood’s underworld enterprise, popularly known as the D-company had acquired massive wealth in many countries including the middle east and UK. Members linked to his gang still run a number of illegal businesses in India and Pakistan.

In January this year, the Delhi police busted a terror module revealing that the D-Company and Pakistan’s notorious intelligence agency ISI has been planning to assassinate RSS leaders. In 2018, the government had auctioned off another property of Dawood Ibrahim after a Supreme Court order to seize all the properties owned by the fugitive.
