Dongri To Dubai: Six Decades of The Mumbai Mafia

by S. Hussain Zaidi

Dongri to Dubai is the first-ever attempt to chronicle the history of the Mumbai mafia. It is the story of notorious gangsters like Haji Mastan, Karim Lala, Varadarajan Mudaliar, Chhota Rajan, Abu Salem, but above all, it is the story of a young man who went astray despite having a father in the police force.

Dawood Ibrahim was initiated into crime as a pawn in the hands of the Mumbai police and went on to wipe out the competition and eventually became the Mumbai police’s own nemesis. The narrative encompasses several milestones in the history of crime in India, from the rise of the Pathans, the formation of the Dawood gang, the first-ever supari, the mafia’s nefarious role in Bollywood, Dawood’s move to Karachi, and Pakistan’s subsequent alleged role in sheltering one of the most wanted persons in the world.

Dongri to Dubai: Six Decades of the Mumbai Mafia, by S. Hussain Zaidi, talks about the people involved in the major crimes in India. Meticulously researched, this book offers a smart analysis along with facts and figures.
