Dawood Ibrahim is in Pakistan, US government tells London court

During the trial for the extradition of Dawood Ibrahim's top henchman, Jabir Motiwala, the US government's advocate stated in the court that the D Company's network spreads in Pakistan, India and the UAE.

After the Indian government’s repeated claims of the international mafia don Dawood Ibrahim operating out of Pakistan, the US government has now asserted that the dreaded gangster indeed operates his illegal activities from the safe confines of Pakistan’s Karachi metropolis. However, Pakistan has always shrugged off the allegations of sheltering India’s most wanted, Dawood Ibrahim.

The FBI in London court said that Dawood is running his international crime syndicate from Karachi in Pakistan. Prior to the trial for the extradition of Dawood Ibrahim’s top henchman, Jabir Motiwala, the US government’s advocate stated in the court that the D Company’s network spreads in Pakistan, India and the UAE.

Infamous for committing multitudes of crimes and his role in the Mumbai bomb blasts, the founder and head of the D Company, Dawood Ibrahim is living in Pakistan and is running the entire operation from the there. On behalf of the FBI, the advocate said in the court that Dawood and his brother were successful in fleeing India after Mumbai blasts in 1993.

The FBI counsel also contended that Dawood has been trying since a decade to build his network in America, especially through his money laundering racket and other illegal activities such as extortion. The US is seeking to extradite his top henchman Jabir Motiwala, who was caught in London last year, to the US to face the law for charges of conspiracy to commit extortion.

The FBI has submitted in court that during the trip to Pakistan in December 2011, Jabir Motiwala introduced an FBI confidential source to his co-conspirator, who was the lead money launderer for D-Company. In the meetings in 2011, the confidential source and Motivala discussed debt collection and extortion and how D-Company used its brute power to settle Business disputes. The US government’s counsel, John Hardy argued that Motivala and the FBI confidential source also discussed debt collection by D-Company in the US and abroad.

Dismissing the assertions made by the US government’s counsel, Edward Fitzgerald QC, representing Motivala, claimed that the evidence was gathered in Pakistan without following the due procedures and was in contravention with the international law and sovereignty.
