India's big catch: Dawood Ibrahim's close aide Farooq Takla arrested by CBI in Dubai


Mumbai, Mar 8 (Zee News): Mumbai: In a big diplomatic victory for India, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday brought back notorious gangster Farooq Takla – a close aide of fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

Takla was formally deported to India by the authorities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) following his arrest by the CBI officials in Dubai.

According to reports, an Air India flight no. AI 996 carrying Takla and CBI officials landed in Mumbai around 5.30 am today.

Takla, who has been managing the operation of Dawood's international crime syndicate in Dubai, is wanted in several cases, including murder, extortion and kidnapping for ransom.

He will be produced before a special TADA court here.

Taqla has fled India after the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai along with Dawood and his henchmen.

He is a co-accused in the Mumbai blasts case along with Dawood and several of his close aides.

Takla faces conspiracy charges in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.

It is believed that National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval has played a pivotal role in Takla's deportation to India.

At India's request, the Interpol had issued a Red Corner Notice against Takla in 1995.

    In the parliament opposition parties are demanding to bring Nirav Modi who was run after more than Rs11,000 crores public sector bank scam.
    The nations premier investigation agency whose own Director was handpicked by PM Modi himself involved in corruption is mission to arrest Dawood Ibrahim's close aide Farooq Takla.
    It's only weeks before CBI sent a 'request' to Nirav Modi as if he is guest waiting to receive state award but all of sudden become active flies Middle East and arrest Dawood aide.

    This is nothing but another deflection from BJP's own corruption to use Dawood terror as an excuse.

    Yes, have come across Nirav Modi's name while leafing through mags lke Vogue. But Mehul Choksi's name was heard from the mouth of NaMo on Nov 5th 2015, NaMo addressing him 'Mehul Bhai' , the occasion was NaMo's much hyped gold scheme with a target collection of 20,000 tons of gold but the scheme bombed and only 400 grams of gold was collected. Not even hard core bhakths trusted him on this one!

    But the real bomb would be when/if he reveals that Dawood also shared the dinner table over Nawaz Shareef's birthday bash at Lahore on Dec 25, 2015 and participated in hugging too.

    Good job UAE government, I think he has been sent by Dawood to find out what treatment will he get if he enters India. There surely is some game plan.

    So give BJP the brownie points for catching the insignificant small fish. Guys be alert the LS elections are approaching so all such political stunts will be more and more on display.
    Nation wants Chor Modi 1 & 2 be brought back now !
    Nation wants Mehul Choksi be brought back now !
    Nation wants Vijay Mallya be brought back now !
    We are not interested in some Takla you brought back. BJP can enjoy scoring their brownie points but what has our country really gained by bringing small fish and the news getting flashed in the media as though India won the World Cup ?

    Read the news carefully if you understand english. Don't give credit to BJP for everything. Quoting one sentence from above news:
    At India's request, the Interpol had issued a Red Corner Notice against Takla in 1995

    Also, go through wikepedia to know who was PM at that time? Was it BJP or Modi or Congress?

    Sharat..what BJP government did after the fall of Congress government? They too didn't sleep over this issue? Infact Modi government just interested in taking credit for everything and it's achievements are a big Zero. Common man is suffering due to BJP's misrule that too inefficient finance minister. By the way, I am not congress spokesperson. You were giving credit to Modi government and hence wanted to tell you the fact. For me Congress or BJP both are same. They are like two sides of same coin. I stand by truth and not lies.

    Has anyone heard of this Takla fella before this morning? He could just be one of the hundreds of sidekicks of Dawood. The way Republic TV has been making a show out of this - without forgetting to add - 'In the same way bank fraudsters also will be extradited' it's clear that it's part of the preparation for 2019. Get Dawood as promised, nothing less.

    Never heard this name before. There is no news of he being arrested in Dubai. Some news quote that he just arrived in Delhi airport and authorities arrested him when he was in immigration counter. Now they say it's diplomatic victory.
