Fadnavis says Nawab Malik made land deal with close aides of Dawood
BJP’s Leader of Opposition and the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday made a shocking expose of how Nationalist Congress Party’s (NCP) Minister Nawab Malik allegedly entered into a “land deal” at throwaway prices with two henchmen of fugitive mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar.
Malik’s Solidus Investments Pvt Ltd (SIPL) completed the land transaction in Kurla with M Salim Ishaq Patel and Sardar Shahvali Khan who are close aides of Dawood. of which, Sardar Shahvali Khan has been sentenced to life imprisonment in the March 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts.
Fadnavis has released the documents of this 16-year-old deal before the media.
Fadnavis, the former Maharashtra Chief Minister has demanded a probe by a competent state or central authority. He said the prime land worth several crores of rupees on LBS Marg in Kurla, was bought by the Malik-linked SIPL, signed by his son Faraz Malik, for barely Rs.30 lakh.
Fadnavis declared that this transaction and four other similar deals, prove Malik has links with the underworld and anti-national elements and demanded a probe by suitable state or central agencies while promising to hand over the documents to NCP President Sharad Pawar.
“While Sardar Shahavali Khan is a life-sentence convict, M Salim Ishaq Patel is a former driver, bodyguard, and frontman for Dawood’s sister, the late Haseena Parker, and also held her Power of Attorney (PoA),” Fadnavis said. He questioned the need for Malik to enter into a business deal with such persons who killed the people of Mumbai.
Soon as the press conference of Devendra Fadnavis was over, Malik made a challenging tweet: “Aa raha hoon main (I am coming)”, referring to his media briefing a short while later.
Malik addressed the media after the former chief minister of Maharashtra accused him of having business dealings with 1993 Mumbai blasts convicts, the NCP leader said baseless allegations were being levelled against him to malign his image and said he did not know underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parker.
Malik said, “I will drop a hydrogen bomb tomorrow in connection with Fadnavis. I will expose his underworld links.”
Responding to Fadnavis’ allegation that Malik bought land at throwaway prices, the minister said, “Whatever sum was sought by the owner was given. The watchman had created paperwork for ownership on a 300m plot. Money was paid for that.”
