ED investigates Nawab Malik about the Dawood connection, and Sharad Pawar calls it 'harassment'.

The Enforcement Directorate is questioning the leader of the National Congress Party and Minister of State Nawab Malik regarding the money laundering case against Dawood Ibrahim and his associates. Malik was picked up from his home at 7 am on Wednesday and his questioning began at 8 am.

NCP Chief Sharad Pawar called Malik's question an attempt to harass those who spoke against the abuse of central authority. Malik's deputies have been very truthful and we were sure some issues would be raised by them to annoy him. If there is a Muslim activist who is their opponent, it is their habit to associate his name with that of Underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim. When I was the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, they tried to link my name to Dawood as well. "This is an attempt to harass those who oppose abuse by central authorities," said Sharad Pawar.

Malik's name first appeared in intelligence information collected by the agency in the Hawala case, sources said.

The ED has been investigating a money laundering case against Ibrahim, Iqbal Mirchi, Chhota Shakeel, Parkar, and Javed Chikna after finding several hawala transactions linked to money illegally obtained through extortion, drug trafficking, and the sale of real estate in the Nagpada and Bhendi Bazaar areas of Mumbai city.

The agency has searched 10 properties in Mumbai, including the residences of Kaskar, Salim Fruit, the son of Chhota Shakeel's brother-in-law, and Ibrahim's sister, Haseena Parkar, as well as others linked to the investigation. We also asked the gangster Chota Shakeel's brother-in-law, Salim Fruit, Cascara, and Parker's son, in this case.

ED's money-laundering case against Ibrahim and his aides builds on a new case brought by the National Bureau of Investigation (NIA) against D Company earlier this month under the strict Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has named Ibrahim and several of his associates as part of their involvement in terrorist activities, including money laundering through hawala transactions, against India.

Jayant Patil, president of the state NCP, said the Enforcement Directorate (ED) broke the rules by picking up Nawab Malik early in the morning without any kind of prior notice. This is another example of how power is misused in the system. No such announcement was made to him. The ED ignored all the rules and regulations set out by welcoming the Minister of State early in the morning without prior notice. 

Nawab Malik has a history of exposing wrongdoing by certain people. What happened today was an attempt to lure him into a trap. We don't know why they took him. This incident is an attempt to offend some people by deliberately targeting Nawab Malik's past work. Malik has recently been in the news for tweeting at Samir Wankhede, a former zone director at NCB. They booked a drug case against Aryan Khan, which was trending on every news channel.
