The agency searched premises of Ibrahim’s aides in western part of Mumbai like Bandra, Santacruz and Borivali and south Mumbai’s Nagpada and Parel areas.

The official said that several hawala operators and drug peddlers were found to be associated with Ibrahim following a case registered by the NIA in February this year.
