Maha minister Nawab Malik appears before ED in connection with money laundering
On Wednesday the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has grilled the national spokesperson of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik in connection to money laundering.
Nawab Malik’s links in relation to some property deals are under the radar of the ED. He is being grilled in a money-laundering probe linked to the activities of Dawood and his aides.
Nawab Malik’s name first cropped up in the intelligence inputs gathered by the agency in the hawala case.
A team of ED officials is grilling Malik who made allegations against the NCB chief when the NCB had made several arrests in connection with a drugs cartel.
Malik is the second NCP minister to come under the ED scanner after the former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh went to the agency on November 1, 2021, was arrested early the next morning, and remains in custody till now.
Earlier, the NIA had raided certain properties linked with the absconder mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar and his relatives in Mumbai.
Five days ago, the ED arrested the don’s younger brother, Iqbal Ibrahim Kaskar in connection with a money-laundering case lodged against him.
Anticipating ‘a call’ from the agency, Malik had earlier stated that he would welcome the ED whenever they come.

What kind of legal system do democracies the world over have (which is in India too) that no police or enforcement agencies can catch hold of known criminals in large scale deals and, if at all, they catch them only in small deals, which also take ages to investigate, rarely reach chargesheet stage, and still more rarely get conviction?
And no one bothers about such a system! God save the world!!
