Britain’s largest newspaper The Sunday Times on May 26th, 2019 said jihadist funder Md. Shahid Uddin Khan has donated 20 thousand pounds to Tory Party, although initially, Khan denied making any political donations, he had to admit as confronted with the register of member’s interests. He told The Sunday Times, the reason behind making the donation was because he “liked” the junior health minister (MP Stephen Hammond) stating, “He has been very helpful to his constituents. He once helped my second daughter when she had problems with her school documents”.

Following publication of The Sunday Times report, a team of investigative journalists have found the shocking evidence of secret business relations between Tory MP Stephen Hammond and Islamic State funder Md. Shahid Uddin Khan. It is even learned that Mr. Khan has actually invested the money in South Coast Regeneration and Investment Property (SCRIP) where Mr. Hammond is holding 15 percent of issued share capital from March 8, 2017. It is further learned that Md. Shahid Uddin Khan has also invited Sally Hammond, wife of Stephen Hammond MP to join Zumana Investment & Properties Limited (incorporation number 7417417, dated October 23, 2010), company formed by Khan and his family members.

In 2009, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, along with his wife Farjana Anjum and daughters Shehtaz Munasi Khan, Parisa Pinaz Khan and Zumana Fiza Khan had entered the United Kingdom with tons of dirty money and had even managed immigrant status under Visa Tier 1, vide VAF No. 511702. They invested 12 million pounds only for obtaining the ‘Golden Visa’. None of the agencies in the United Kingdom, including the National Crime Agency (NCA) has ever asked the Khans about the source of money or how the money had entered Britain.

On January 17, 2019, Dhaka residence of Md. Shahid Uddin Khan was raided by the members of the Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Bangladesh Police.

CTTC, based on secret information, raided House No. 184, Road No. 2, Baridhara DOHS in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which is owned by Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and was allegedly used as a warehouse for arms, explosives and propaganda materials of Islamic State (ISIS). During the raid, a large volume of weapons, detonator, counterfeit Bangladesh currency notes and jihadist materials of ISIS were recovered by the CTTC unit.

Following this recovery, three separate cases against ISIS-funder Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, daughters and other accomplices were lodged. The cases are Cantonment PS, Case no 10, Section-6(2)/7/11/12 of Anti-Terrorism Act 2009 (amendment 2013); Cantonment PS, Case no 11, Section-25-A, Special Power Act 1974; and Cantonment PS, Case no 12, Section-19-A of Arms Act 1878.

According to credible sources, Md. Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife Farjana Anjum, daughters have laundered millions of dollars between 2009-2018 from Bangladesh and invested in the United Arab Emirates and Britain.

There are allegations about Md. Shahid Uddin Khan and his family having business relations with Dawood Ibrahim’s D-Company in Dubai. Dawood Ibrahim controls much of the illegal channels of money transfer around the world. He has strong bases in India, United Arab Emirates, Thailand, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Britain, European Union nations, Australia, Canada, the United States, and the African continent.

The United States Department of the Treasury designated Dawood Ibrahim as a terrorist as part of its international sanctions program, effectively forbidding US financial entities from working with him and seizing assets believed to be under his control. The Department of Treasury keeps a fact sheet on Dawood which contains reports of his syndicate having smuggling routes from South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa shared with and used by terrorist organization Al Qaeda. The fact sheet also said that Dawood’s syndicate is involved in the large-scale shipment of narcotics in the United Kingdom and Western Europe.
