An alleged aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, Mannuparambil Abdul Majeed, 53, reported to be behind the circulation of Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN) from Gulf countries to Kerala, was detained in Dubai recently. Officials said a team of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) is going to Dubai on December 4 to bring him to India.
Sources said Majeed was detained in Dubai based on a red corner notice issued by Interpol on NIA's request. He is alleged to be linked to the seizure of fake notes with a face value of Rs 72.5 lakh in 2008. The notes were seized from one Muhammad Alshad of Thrissur, who had just returned from the UAE.
