The D-company received a major shock after gangster Chhota Shakeel's brother Anwar Shaikh was arrested from Abu Dhabi Airport on Friday. Earlier, a red corner notice had been issued against Anwar for his role in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. The arrested is also said to have relations with terrorist organisation ISIS and was planning to attack India.

Indian Embassy officials are trying to get custody of Anwar as a red corner notice (RCN) has been issued against him. But, Pakistani officials have been trying to oppose it as Anwar was caught holding a Pakistani passport and his handover to Indian authorities would reveal the hand of Pakistan's ISI in terror activities against India.

The main accused of the 1993 blasts in Mumbai, Chhota Shakeel had helped the terrorists to receive necessary information for implementing the plan and Anwar too was part of the misdeed. Alongside, he was also involved in the extortion of several prominent personalities.

Anwar's family resides in Abu Dhabi and has several business operations in the province for which he constantly travels between Pakistan and UAE.

According to sources, if Anwar is handed over to India, this would be a major blow to Dawood Ibrahim's gang and especially Pakistan as they are the ones who will be exposed. In 2008, Abu Dhabi police detained Anwar on his arrival from Pakistan but they did not hand him over to Indian officials despite several attempts.
