Given all the big deals and mergers and acquisitions happening lately, it seemed a formality before this phenomenon would reach the underworld as well !

According to an article in the TOI,  

“D-Company’ is now officially part of the Lashkar-e-Toiba’s terror network, with Pakistan’s notorious Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) getting Dawood Ibrahim to merge his gang with the fundamentalist terror organisation as part of a gameplan to crank up its anti-India campaign. “

and

“…On the other hand, Lashkar benefits immensely from collaboration with D-Company which continues to attract recruits and has acquired financial muscle by venturing into mainstream commercial enterprises without letting go of its original money spinner, smuggling.”

Looks like consolidation seems to be the buzzword even in this “industry” !! 🙂

Scary thought, eh ?
