In a major push for Indian agencies, London police arrested Jabir Siddiq alias Jabir Moti, the key aide for mafia don Dawood Ibrahim in London on Friday, 17 August. The police arrested him at a top hotel on Friday and later produced him in court, reported News18.com.
Moti, a Pakistani national, was reportedly in charge of Ibrahim’s finances, and looked after his investments across the Middle East, UK, Europe, Africa, countries of the South East Asia and Pakistan, according to News18.com .
He was picked up by officials of the Charing Cross police station.
There is no clarity on what charges Moti has been arrested yet, but the investigators are expected to question the top associate on his connection to the don, his family members and his henchmen.
India had previously also requested Moti’s arrest, since Moti is a close confidante of Ibrahim and his family, who are currently lodged in the upmarket Clifton locality in Pakistan. According to the report, Moti also owns some property in the residential compound owned by Ibrahim’s family in Karachi.
Moti is allegedly involved in drug smuggling, extortion and other criminal activities, according to News18.com.
Moti is allegedly the manager of the underworld don’s finances and that of the ‘D Company’. He reportedly played a key role in finding options to move Ibrahim’s family to the UK.
Moti is currently a permanent resident of Hungary and also holds a 10-year UK visa. He is also a citizen of Antigua and Dominican Republic, according to a report quoted by The Indian Express. His passport states that he is a resident of Karachi and is 48 years old.
