Alleged Dawood aide faces trial

Tuesday 02nd July 2019 13:28 EDT

The UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), are arguing on behalf of the US authorities, and told the court that Jabir Moti is a “senior member” of D Company, a crime syndicate associated with Dawood Ibrahim.

The 52-year-old, appeared before the court via routine procedure of video link from Wandsworth Prison in south-west London on 28th June, Friday. Jabir was referred to in the court as a “top lieutenant” of D Company — the organised crime and terror network associated with Dawood Ibrahim.

Moti, who has since made an application to the court to have his name changed on the case documents to Jabir Siddiq, was arrested by Scotland Yard officers from a London hotel in August 2018 following an FBI investigation dating back to 2005.

Dawood is a key accused in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case.
