The ADG said that in June, a large conversion union was exposed. 16 defendants, including main gangsters Maulana Umar Gautam and Kalim Siddiqui, have been detained in different locations on different days. Omar’s son Abdullah has been in direct and active contact with Jehangir Alam, Kausar and Faraz Shah, who are involved in this union.
The ADG said evidence of funding of Rs 79 million has been found in the accounts of previously detained Umar Gautam and Kaleem Siddiqui. In this, Rs 57 million have been received from Umar Gautam accounts and Rs 22 million from Kalim accounts.
Both Umar and Kaleem have received funding from almost the same organizations. Evidence of money originating from Great Britain, the United States and other Gulf countries through hawala and other means has also been found in the accounts of them and their institutions.
