He was arrested after a long interrogation. After this incident, Mamata Banerjee called Sharad Pawar. On this day, the two talked about the over-activism of the central agency. According to sources, Mamata Banerjee has requested Sharad Pawar not to remove Nawab Malik from the ministry. Incidentally, Nawab Malik is known as the face of BJP opposition. He has criticized Narendra Modi and Amit Shah on multiple issues. As a result, the anti-BJP political parties think that the arrest of Nawab Malik is very active with the BJP agency.

Dawood’s associates like Iqbal Mirchi, Chhota Shakil, Hasina Parker and Javed Chikna have already been found to be involved in money laundering.
The money was smuggled through extortion, drug trafficking and other illegal activities. In the last few days, ED has been conducting searches in various places in Mumbai in this incident. According to the source, the house of Dawood Ibrahim’s late sister Hasina Parkar was also raided by the ED officials.
