Dawood pumped in fake currency to Kerala: NIA


In a major revelation, the National Investigating Agency has told the Ernakulam NIA court that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim played a major role in smuggling counterfeit currencies printed in Pakistan to Kerala.

The probe agency also told the court that Dawood Ibrahim’s brother Anees Ibrahim and Davood's aide Aftaf Bhatkal, both wanted criminals in the 1993 Mumbai blast case, helped Tahir Taklya to smuggle the fake currency notes to Kerala.

NIA also found that the fake Indian currencies circulated in Kerala were printed at Quetta district in Pakistan with the aid of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

NIA made the submissions on the remand report of Tahir, the main accused in the Taliparamba counterfeit smuggling case.

NIA submitted that Tahir explained to the NIA the details of the smuggling episode dating back to 2007.

NIA DySP P Vikraman submitted before the Ernakualm NIA court that Tahir was the mastermind behind the smuggling of FICN to India.

Tahir, Muhammed Rafi of Chavakkad, Kamal and Abdul Majeed conspired with a Pakistani native, Imtiaz Ibrahim alias Ibrahim.

The currency had been brought to Kerala through Muhammed Rafi of Chavakkad, the eighth accused in the case.

For instance, the NIA submitted that on May 30, 2008 Tahir sent Rs.20 lakh through Rafi from Abu Dhabi. NIA said Tahir and Rafi were trying to pump in fake currencies to Kerala. The Sharjah police had earlier arrested Tahir and seized counterfeit currencies of Rs.50 lakh possessed by him.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
