Dawood Ibrahim is the son of a police constable who was in Mumbai Police. He started his crime life with gang wars in Dongri area of Mumbai. In Dongri he came in contact with the gang members of Haji Mastan and his gang war started.
In the 1980s, he was first arrested in a robbery case and later his criminal record increased. Dawood became more powerful and dangerous due to fighting between Haji and Pathan gangs, which consisted mostly of expatriates from Afghanistan.
