He was the brother of Tiger Memon, the main accused in the Mumbai blasts. In 1994, the investigating agencies had seized Rs 44 lakh from Yakub’s partner Khandwani. In 1995 also, the Industries Minister of Goa had confiscated Rs 60 lakh given to Khandwani.
Minister Nawab Malik on the radar?
Two of the four people taken into custody are also directly related to Nawab Malik. Suhail Khandwani is the business partner of Nawab Malik directly. The name of Chhota Shakeel’s brother-in-law Salim Fruit had come to the fore even after the ED questioned Salim Fruit in a money laundering case involving Nawab Malik. It is said that only after interrogating Salim Fruit, the ED got some important clues against Nawab Malik in the case of dealing with people related to Dawood Ibrahim. The information received after this interrogation was of great help to the ED in filing the chargesheet against Nawab Malik. There is a lot of discussion in the political circles that after ED, Nawab Malik has now come on the radar of NIA.
