A special court in Mumbai yesterday declared deceased underworld don Iqbal Mirchi’s family including his wife and two sons as fugitive economic offenders and ordered for the confiscation of their properties.

The order was passed by special court judge Abhijit Nandgaonkar while hearing an application filed by the Enforcement Directorate. While passing the order, the court reasoned that the properties were purchased in the name of Mirchi’s wife Hajra Memon and two sons Junaid and Asif from profits of Mirchi’s drug business and hence considered the proceeds from crime.

As per this order various properties in India and abroad valued at approximately  97 crore rupees would be confiscated.

The ED had approached the court last December for trying cases against the accused under the prevention of money laundering act.

All the accused were issued notice by the court to appear before it on February 16th but they failed to do so, following which the court passed the order.
