Farooq Takla, Dawood Ibrahi’s closest aide, has been deported from Dubai, the police has reported, and was brought to Mumbai this morning. He is scheduled to meet the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) today itself. After the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, he had absconded the country, and a Red Corner Notice had been issued against him in 1995. Along with being complicit for the blasts, he is going to face the following charges, murder, attempt to murder, voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means. His arrest is really crucial for the information regarding Dawood’s whereabouts, who has been able to avoid being caught by the Indian authorities for a very long time.
Subramaniam Swamy tweeted about the arrest, We need to compliment NSA Doval for Farooq Takla coming in CBI kitty. Dawood not far off?. Dawood has been rumored to be living in Pakistan without any consequences from the authorities, so it will be interesting if Takla can provide anything that is crucial enough to get him in the clutches of the police.
Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam has said that this Farooq’s arrest is a big success for the Indian authorities, and it will mark a huge blow to the D company. The arrest is also being seen as a diplomatic win for India, as they were able to get Takla to be deported from Dubai through negotiations. Hopefully, more of Dawood;s aids are going to be arrested to cut off any support from outside, so that its easier to spot and arrest him finally.
