Dawood Ibrahim was a son of an honest police constable with Mumbai police. He started into gang war as he was living in Dongri area of Mumbai. In Dongri, he got in touch with gang members of Haji Mastan and his gang war started. In 1980’s, he was first arrested for a robbery case and later his crime records increased. Dawood became more powerful and dangerous due to fight between Haji gang and Pathan gang who were mostly migrants from Afghanistan.
Due to gang war, Pathan gang managed to kill one of Dawood’s brother and it lead Dawood to take revenge and than Mumbai saw one of the deadliest gang war in city. Dawood managed to finish all members of the gang. After Haji Mastan moved to politics Dawood took over the gang and became bigger than Haji in underworld.
Dawood betting career
Dawood was mostly involved into drug trafficking an providing transportation for illegal activities. But Shetty and Chotta Shakeel were keen about cricket and Dawood made his presence at several cricket matches in Dubai and elsewhere. There many cricketers of Indian and West Indies were managed and betting was one on a very high level. This started after 1985 and there are visuals of Dawood present at several cricket matches. And till date cricket betting is one of the prime business of the D gang.
Dawood became so powerful that every film industry member was in touch with him. They were attending parties as well. As no one had guts to say no to Dawood at least till 1993 Mumbai bomb blast. He produced several Bollywood movies on name of others and profit share was given to Dawood. He was dating many Bollywood actress. I wont name an actress but she had a long affair with Dawood. I think leaving few all actors have made appearances in Dawood parties. Even today Shakeel is taking care of financing Bollywood movies. Everyone knows Bollywood movie Chori Chori Chupke Chupke was a film financed by the D gang.
