New Delhi: Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is still allegedly laundering blood money through a public sector bank’s branch in the tax havens in Nassau in Bahamas, according to a TV channel investigation.

The channel said in a press release that the investigation showed large volumes of funds belonging to terror groups based in Afghanistan and Pakistan are being handled by the fugitive don.

The release said highly-placed government sources reportedly told the investigation team that the bank’s Nassau branch saw successive wire transfers of several hundred thousand dollars from at least 3 Dubai-based currency exchanges.

The Al-Dirham exchange is named in an Indian government dossier on Dawood`s operations, it said.

The release said the bank’s Nassau branch was unavailable for comment.
