Before Monday's game, he was named one of three finalists to the Hart Trophy, which is given to the NHL's most valuable player. However, the chances of the Penguins winning two more rounds without Crosby, Kris Letang and Matt Murray are not great.

Though he managed to hoodwink intelligence and security agencies all this while, his number was deemed suspicious in January when ATS arrested some people for running illegal worldwide call centre (through SIM box) in Lucknow, Hardoi and Sitapur. He has been to Pakistan and the police believe that the ISI trained him there. "The Maharashtra ATS is now obtaining details of all bank accounts held by Qureshi and Naviwala and examining the bank statements, after which the duo will be questioned as to the transactions that they have made over the years", The Asian Age report said. "The people residing in Dorji have good reasons to be in touch with the people in Pakistan". Naviwala relayed the instructions to Qureshi and he then sent the money to the account, which was Ali's.

An official said the arrests were made in a joint operation by anti-terrorism squads of Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra, PTI reported.

ATS officials seized a cell phone and Rs 71.57 lakh in cash from the house of Qureshi, who was in hawala business at the behest of one Jawed Naviwala, the officer said.
