Dawood Ibrahim led D-Company, as claimed by the National Investigative Agency, has 'wanted to spread communal tension in the country by attacking religious leaders, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) leaders and churches', reported The Times of India. This plan was hatched soon after the Narendra Modi government came to power.
The NIA has decided to file a chargesheet on Saturday against 10 members of Ibrahim-led D-Company, who were assigned to 'create unrest'.
The TOI report also adds that two D-Company shooters, who had killed two right-wing leaders, revealed a much larger conspiracy — Pakistan-based Javed Chikna and South Africa-based Zahid Miyan alias 'Jao' had not only masterminded the attack on the right-wing leaders but had attacks planned on various religious institutions. They also had a number of people they had planned to assassinate. It also says that the chargesheet will go on to name 10 D-Company members, including Javed Chikna and Zahid Miyan, but will not name Dawood Ibrahim.
A few months ago, the Supreme Court had refused to entertain the plea of former Home Secretary and BJP Lok Sabha MP RK Singh seeking a probe into the reported claim that various Mumbai police personnel were on the payroll of Dawood Ibrahim, which was undermining the law and order of the country. The MP had claimed that many policemen were getting money from Dawood and in the process, were undermining the law and order of the country, he said. The CJI, however, dismissed the case.
In April this year, a report by the The Times of India had quoted former RAW secretary V Balachandran as saying, "If we have such a system, I am not sure that Dawood will be convicted here in India. He will be acquitted by Indian courts or by the Indian police. Case papers against him, perhaps, will go missing."
Earlier, there were rumours that Dawood Ibrahim might have been dying of gangrene but these rumours were dismissed by Chhota Shakeel, who said he was fit. If Dawood did have gangrene, it would have undermined India's case further.
