As per a National Investigation Agency chargesheet, gangster Dawood Ibrahim’s gang member Salim Qureshi’s family entered Pakistan illegally three times since 2013 via the United Arab Emirates to attend Chhota Shakeel’s functions.

In a chargesheet filed in a Mumbai Court in a terror funding case, the NIA recorded the statement of Qureshi’s wife, Sazia Mohammad Salim Qureshi. Making a sensational claim, Sazia Qureshi said that they were allowed entry and exit to and from Pakistan’s Karachi Airport without the stamp of their arrival or departure on their passports.

The NIA, which is probing D-company’s syndicate and terror funding, has come to know during interrogation that Karachi airport is under the control of D-company. Stamps are not put on the passports of those who come to the Karachi Airport to strike business deals with Dawood Ibrahim, Chhota Shakeel, and his family members, or “D-Company,” the NIA probe revealed.

The NIA, engaged in the investigation of terror funding, got information about this route during the interrogation of the brother-in-law of Chhota Shakeel and the wife of the arrested accused, Salim Qureshi alias Salim Fruit.
