Personal Information

Abu Salem is an Indian terrorist and criminal gangster who is also known as Aqil Ahmed Azmi and Abu Samaan.

He is from the Azamgarh district in Uttar Pradesh, which is in the center of India. Abu Salem was a driver for the D-Company, moving contraband and artillery.

After introducing a novel approach in which he hired unemployed youths from his hometown of Azamgarh to travel to Mumbai, carry out shootouts, and then return the following day without being located by the Mumbai police, he eventually rose through the ranks.

In India, he is currently serving a life sentence.

In 1991, he tied the knot with Samira Jumani, a 17-year-old college student with whom he has a son.

Samira currently resides in Duluth, Georgia, in Gwinnett County.

She told interviewers after Salem was arrested in Portugal that he was a violent, psychotic man who forced her to marry him.

Abu Salem and Monica Bedi, his partner, were detained in September 2002 and later sentenced to prison in Portugal for entering the country with forged documents. Bedi was found guilty by an Indian court in 2006 of obtaining a passport under a false name.

The Supreme Court of India upheld her conviction in November 2010, but it reduced her prison term to the time she had already served.

Salem is well-known for usurping overseas distribution rights and extorting money from film producers to terrorize the Bollywood film industry.

It is believed that Salem was the mastermind behind the threats against Gulshan Kumar, Subhash Ghai, Rajiv Rai, and Rakesh Roshan, who are producers of Bollywood films.

In 1997, members of his gang killed Gulshan Kumar, but they were unsuccessful in their attempt to kill Rajiv Rai and Rakesh Roshan.

He also committed several crimes, including extortion and multiple murders.

After that, in 2002, he was extradited to India and arrested in Portugal on suspicion of using a fake passport.

In some cases, he was tried and found guilty, and in 2015, he was given a life sentence.

According to source 1, Abu Salem was born in 1969.1962, as stated in source 2:1968) into a lower-middle-class family in the Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh’s Sarai Mir village.

Although some accounts maintain that he was the eldest of four brothers, he was the second youngest of the four.

His father, who worked as a lawyer, was killed in a car accident.

To provide for his family, he opened a small mechanic shop in his hometown.

After completing his intercollegiate degree, he left the village and attended a primary school in Azamgarh.

He went to work as a taxi driver after relocating to Delhi.

He moved to Bombay in 1985 to make a living.

In 1986, he worked in a garment shop in Andheri West and as a bread delivery boy between Bandra and Andheri.

Kings of Car Trading was the name of his business establishment in that location.

Numerous D-company sharpshooters were killed in police encounters or by the Chhota Rajan gang in the mid-1990s.

Salem successfully implemented a novel strategy in which he hired Muslim youths without jobs from his hometown of Azamgarh to travel to Mumbai, carry out the shooting, and then return the following day to Azamgarh.

Compared to sharpshooters, these young people were paid a pittance, and the Mumbai police were unable to locate them because they did not have a criminal record with the Bombay police.

Abu Salem rose to prominence within the gang shortly after receiving Anees Ibrahim’s support.

Salem was given the responsibility of managing Dawood’s Bollywood deals and film financing because of his ability to talk quickly.

He invited actors to stage shows he organized.

Salem is thought to be the mastermind behind the crime.

When Rajiv Rai and Rakesh Roshan, two Bollywood film directors, refused to comply with his extortion demands, his gang members also attempted to shoot at them. Salem fled Dubai out of concern for Dawood’s ire.

In 1998, he finally broke off his relationship with Dawood and went his own way.

Salem’s departure from the D-Company is believed to have been caused by his disagreement with Shakeel and Dawood’s preference for Shakeel. He planned to kidnap Milton Plastics’ owner for Rs 30 million in 2000.

His men shot and killed Ajit Diwani, the personal secretary of film actress Manisha Koirala, in January 2001.

His extradition to India to stand trial in the 1993 Bombay bombings case was approved by a Portugal court in February 2004.

He was handed over to India in November 2005 by Portuguese authorities with the assurance that the Indian government would not use the death penalty.

Monica Bedi was also extradited to India and found guilty of forging passports in 2006.

She was sentenced to prison, but she was not involved in any of Abu Salem’s businesses.

He faces charges of transporting and disseminating weapons.

A lower court in Portugal revoked his extradition to India because Indian authorities had violated deportation rules by bringing new cases against him that carried the death penalty.
