The Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) of Maharashtra has arrested a 40-year-old man who was working with fugitive gangster Anees Ibrahim. The man is accused of financing terror activities and doing anti-national things in the country. Anees Ibrahim is the brother of Dawood Ibrahim, who is a wanted gangster and a major funder of terrorism around the world.
Officials from the ATS said that the suspect, Parvez Zubair Vaid Memon, who is 47 years old, has been arrested and will be brought to court for remand.
ATS’s investigation showed that Anees Ibrahim, Dawood Ibrahim’s brother, and their partners who lived outside of India were using money from illegal activities to fund terrorist activities in India. This is the most recent case in the country against gangsters Dawood Ibrahim and Anees Ibrahim.
Through their Indian handlers, the gang gave money to groups that were banned in India and to people who were accused of doing things that hurt India. Under sections 17 and 18 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, the ATS has filed a FIR against Anees Ibrahim and his partner at the Kalachowki police station (UAPA). The police took Parvez Zubair Ved Memon, 47, into custody on August 3, 2022, from his home in Versova, which is in the Andheri West neighborhood of Mumbai. They did this after getting a tip.
During questioning, it came out that he sold drugs like MDMA, Ketamine, and LSD. The accused was found to have been part of a plan to send money from the drug trade and other illegal activities to groups that did things against India and to people who would do terrorist acts in India.
The accused has known Dawood Ibrahim for a long time and was on the run for a number of crimes, such as extortion. After that, he ran away to Dubai, where he stayed for a long time and set up his illegal business. He is currently working with Anees Ibrahim on a plot and activities that are against the country.
