New Delhi: A Delhi court has issued open non-bailable warrant against underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and his aide Chhota Shakeel for allegedly hiring goons to kill a leader of a right-wing outfit. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sumit Dass passed the order on a plea of Special Cell of Delhi Police seeking issuance of NBW against the duo who had allegedly hatched a conspiracy to eliminate Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Mahasabha leader Swami Chakrapani.
According to the police, Chakrapani had bought a car owned by Dawood Ibrahim in an auction held by the government in Mumbai last year and later set it on fire in Ghaziabad. In June this year, four persons — Junaid, Roger, Yunus and Manish — were arrested as they were allegedly planning to eliminate the right wing leader.
Police claimed that during interrogation, Junaid had disclosed that Shakeel had given them money, asking them to eliminate Chakrapani to teach him a lesson for setting Dawood’s car on fire. Two pistols and ten live cartridges were recovered from their possession, police said.
