The Enforcement Directorate, which is investigating a Money Laundering Case, filed a Prosecution complaint or Charge-sheet in a Special Prevention of Money Laundering Act Court against NCP Minister Nawab Malik, two firms allegedly affiliated with him, and 1993 Mumbai Bomb Blasts convict Sardar Khan.

Witness Testimony and other documented Evidence are included in the Charge-sheet. According to Vijay Singh, the Enforcement Directorate examined Malik and others as part of a Money Laundering Case against Fugitive Mobster Dawood Ibrahim.

According to the Enforcement Directorate, Malik paid Rs 5 lakh in cash and a similar amount by check to Dawood’s late sister Haseena Parkar over two decades ago to steal the Goawala Compound building in Kurla West without the knowledge of the original owners.

The Enforcement Directorate ‘s Money Laundering Case is predicated on two Cases: a National Investigation Agency First Information Report filed against the Dawood gang for terrorizing the public and a police extortion First Information Report filed against Dawood’s brother.

The Charge-sheet also contains a Statement from Parkar’s son Alishan, who previously informed the Enforcement Directorate that his mother had financial dealings with Dawood Ibrahim until her death in 2014 and that Salim Patel was one of her collaborators.
