Dawood's brother eats BIRYANI..scared cops watch



MUMBAI: When a Thane police team carried out a raid at the residence of Iqbal Kaskar, the younger brother of Dawood Ibrahim, at Nagpada here last night, he was eating biryani and watching a reality TV show.

The unexpected presence of sleuths stunned Kaskar, as he asked them "Maine kya kiya hai?" (what have I done). However, the police team gave him time to let him finish the meal before taking him into their custody in connection with an extortion case against him.

"It was around 9.15 pm when Thane Police's Quick Response Team (QRT), equipped with weapons, raided the residence of Haseena Parkar (Dawood's late sister) at Gordon Hall Apartments on Sophia Zuber Road in Nagpada in central Mumbai," an official said.

"Iqbal Kaskar was having biryani and watching "Kaun Banega Crorepati" on television. He was stunned by the surprise raid and asked the police ' Maine kya kiya hain '," he added.

"Kaskar was taken into private vehicle, without giving a chance to anyone to guess what has exactly happened. It was only during the journey of 30 to 34 odd kms (to Thane), that Iqbal got to know the reason of the action against him," the official said.

Kaskar and his aides were arrested for running an extortion racket against builders, land owners, businessmen as well as jewellers, he said.

When Kaskar spotted Pradeep Sharma and the team, he was shocked. There was no chance for him to run or seek anyone's help, the official said.

"Kaskar was rendered helpless. Along with him, his sister Haseena's brother-in-law Iqbal Parkar, alleged drug dealer Mohammad Yasin Khwaja and one transporter Fernando were taken into the custody. The police had arrived at the place in private vehicles to hide their identity. The vehicles were kept ready at the entrance of the building and within a few minutes the vehicles were on their way to Thane," another official, who was involved in a raid, told PTI.

Kaskar, who is said to be looking after Dawood Ibrahim's real estate empire in Mumbai, was very active in extortion racket with the help of some builders, local political party leaders in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Thane area, he said.

Police is verifying whether Kaskar was also running a narcotic drug supply racket as a notorious drug peddler was present there during the raid.

"Police is also investigating hawala links as some threat calls were made to builders from abroad. They are taking help of the Enforcement Directorate in this case," he said.
