Mumbai: Dawood Ibrahim, born Sheikh Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar is a name common in the world’s most wanted lists whether of Interpol or in the Forbes' World's Top 10 most dreaded criminals list of 2011.
He is the head of the notorious crime syndicate D-Company in Mumbai and is accused of heading a vast and sprawling illegal empire in and against India and Indians. After the 1993 Bombay bombings, which Ibrahim allegedly organized and financed, he became India's most wanted man.
According to the United States, Ibrahim maintained close links with al-Qaeda's Osama Bin Laden. As a consequence, the United States declared Dawood Ibrahim a "global terrorist" in 2003 and pursued the matter before the United Nations in an attempt to freeze his assets around the world and crack down on his operations.
The Bush administration has since imposed several sanctions on Ibrahim and his associates. Indian and Russian intelligence agencies have pointed out Ibrahim's possible involvement in several other terror attacks, including the November 2008 Mumbai attacks, as per Interpol.
In this series we tell you about the love life of this dangerous criminal that made headlines in the 90s.
