The UK spooks protect Dawood Ibrahim?
Iqbal Mirchi lives in Hornchurch, in England.
Iqbal Mirchi is wanted by police in India for murder and his part in a terrorist bombing campaign.
He is allegedly among the top 50 global drug barons; according to the US authorities he is the right-hand man of Dawood Ibrahim, head of the 'D' company, a worldwide mafia.
Bombs in Mumbai in 1993 killed over 300 people.
Mirchi's name was linked to the bombings.
According to Mirchi: 'a senior police officer told me that my name would be attached to false charges unless I paid millions of rupees in bribes.
'I refused and moved to Dubai.'
Mirchi admits having met Dawood Ibrahim in Dubai.
Dawood has been described as 'the most dangerous man in the world'.
As well as drugs and terrorism, the D company is involved in gold smuggling, gambling, counterfeit currency, diamond trading, contract killing, extortion and film financing.
It is said to have a 60 per cent stake in the Bollywood film industry.
Dawood is also known to have met Osama Bin Laden and, in the aftermath of 9/11, allowed his smuggling network to be used to enable senior al-Qaeda operatives to flee Afghanistan.

"Dawood has big financial stakes in Nepal. He has made huge investments in a variety of business ventures, from media, private airlines, hotels, travel agencies to trans-border smuggling including that of gold.
