In a major crackdown on the D-Company, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is conducting multiple raids on associates of fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim across 20 locations in Mumbai.

Raids are being carried out in Bandra, Nagpada, Borivali, Goregaon, Parel, Santacruz against sharpshooters, drug traffickers, hawala operators, real estate managers of Dawood Ibrahim, and other key players in the criminal syndicate.

In February this year, the NIA registered a case pertaining to the involvement of top leadership and operatives of D-Company, many of them based abroad, in terror activities, organised crime and acts aimed at creating unrest in India.

The FIR invokes the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

The NIA is monitoring and probing the entire gamut of criminal and terrorist acts committed by members of the underworld network run by don Dawood Ibrahim from his safe haven in Karachi, Pakistan.

In addition to investigating the alleged terror activities of Dawood Ibrahim and his D-Company, the elite counter-terrorism unit will also probe the underworld don's henchmen Chhota Shakeel, Javed Chikna, Tiger Menon, Iqbal Mirchi, sister Haseena Parkar, the Ministry of Home Affairs said.
