Underworld Dawood Ibrahim and his close aides are planning to relocate their families to a safer place out of Pakistan in view of increased intervention by Inter Services Intelligence (ISI). According to a report published in leading daily DNA, the D-company, wary of the increasing pressure on them, will be permanently shifting their family members to some other country; probably South Africa. The inside information about the movements of India’s most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim and his gang was, as per the report, revealed by his close aide Firoz Abdul Rashid Khan, alias Hamza. Hamza, an accused in the 1993 serial blasts, spilled the beans following his arrest by the Crime Branch of the Mumbai Police recently. “Dawood, Chhota Shakeel, Anees Ibrahim, and Tiger Memon — according to Hamza — are looking for a place where their families can feel safe. They want them to come out of the clutches of the Inter Services Intelligence,” a crime branch officer was quote as saying. The current disturbances in Pakistan are believed to be affecting the lifestyle of the families of these high-profile criminals who are wanted in India. The recent spate in bombings in Pakistan has made even the dreaded criminals feel insecure. Moreover, there is a constant pressure on them from ISI. “It is mandatory for their families to stay in Pakistan when they move out of the country and vice versa. Since Dawood and his associates in Pakistan are looking to relocate their families, it is almost certain that they will have to stay in Pakistan. They can never move out of the country,” says a police official, as per the report. Hamza is also believed to have informed the Crime Branch that Dawood would not prefer to live in the West Asian countries in view of threats from rival gangs of Chhota Rajan gangs and others. Hamza has visited Pakistan thrice between 1996 and 1997 and is also believed to have attended Mustaqin’s (Dawood’s son) marriage. He met Dawood Ibrahim and also stayed at Dawood’s home on two occasions. Hamza was instrumental in the landing of arms and explosives in 1993. He was arrested from his Navi Mumbai home on February 6 this year. Hamza’s name is mentioned in the 1993 blasts charge sheet and the CBI had announced a reward of Rs 2 lakh on his name. At present he is in the custody of the CBI.
