He was being questioned in a money laundering case. The BJP had alleged that Malik had purchased the land belonging to a 1993 bomb blast accused. Malik had held a press conference to clarify the issue.
NIA believes that Dawood Ibrahim is trying to create unrest in India and a case has been registered. Various security agencies are carrying out an investigation. Dawood’s brother Iqbal Kaskar carries out land transactions by using Dawood’s name and there is a suspicion that money laundering may have taken place. Kaskar had been questioned by ED and he has named Malik. Hence, Malik was questioned and was arrested later. This may again lead to political mudslinging in the state.
The NCP has alleged that since Malik has been making frequent attacks on the Modi government and BJP, he has been arrested to silence him.
Meanwhile, police bandobast has been increased outside the ED office and barricades have been put up to prevent many people from gathering there.
