Courts in Bangladesh have convicted Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, daughters barrister Shehtaz Munasi Khan and Parisa Pinaz Khan on charges of forgery and fraud, while there is a number of criminal cases pending in Bangladesh, including serious allegations of money laundering and terror funding.
According to media reports, Khans also are having a huge amount of cash in a number of banks in the United Arab Emirates as well they also are accused of having business affiliations with notorious Dawood Ibrahim’s D-Company.
Britain’s popular news portal the Politicalite has been exposing the untold fact about the family through its hard-hitting investigative reports.
Following exposure of their secret business connections with Stephen Hammond MP, the family has turned desperate and began propaganda against the British government. Farjana Anjum Khan has posted a cartoon on her Facebook account demeaning the British government.
Meanwhile, Britain’s National Crime Agency (MCA), MI5 and other law enforcing agencies, including the London Met Police already are investigating the dubious activities of Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, daughters barrister Shehtaz Munasi Khan and Parisa Pinaz Khan.
Seeking anonymity, one of the investigating agencies told this correspondent that they already are surprised seeing Khans owning properties in Britain worth millions of pounds although they did not even bring in one pound through the legal channel. It said members of this family are leading a very posh life, spending hundreds of thousands of pounds each year. As the family does not have any valid income to support such lavish expenditure, it is easily understood that they actually are involved in serious crimes, including trafficking in arms and narcotics.
Authorities may arrest Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and members of his family on charges of money laundering and terror-funding.
