Comment. It's true that D-Company is not a real company. But, the term is used by many Indian newspapers to describe Dawood and associates. Maybe redirect to Dawood Ibrahim. utcursch | talk 05:21, May 17, 2005 (UTC)
Keep. Usage of the term is verifiable on Google. —Tokek 05:53, 17 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Keep Notorious Gang. Well known for terrorist activities in India 18.104.22.168
Keep I think the article shouldn't state D-Company as a corporate enterprise .Otherwise the facts given about D-Company and Dawood Ibrahim's operations seem to be true .
Keep The article is worth some edition but must be kept . I know that the Hawala Buisness run by Dawood in Mumbai runs into billions of dollars and his buisness is often calledby the name D-Company . Dont know how true the article is though.User:Grubb
Keep: The article, at least the version that I see now, does not say anything that is not well-known. Gangsters do not operate like legal businesses, so it is unreasonable to expect to see the same kind of documentary evidence for the existence of Dawood Ibrahim and his gang, as is available for the existence of, say, General Electric or IBM.
COMMENT — Whether or not content is perceived to be "well-known" adds little if anything to the merits of this discussion; in any event, organised crime commonly and increasingly does involve itself in legal business activity. 22.214.171.124 02:12, 21 May 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
