Mumbai, Sep 18: Police in Maharashtra's Thane have detained Iqbal Ibrahim Kaskar, brother of absconding mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, for questioning in an extortion case, official sources said late on Monday. Kaskar was picked up from his south Mumbai residence by a team of Thane Anti-Extortion Cell headed by former 'encounter specialist' Pradeep Sharma. The action follows a complaint by a city businessman alleging he had been getting extortion calls from some mafia gangsters owing allegiance to Iqbal Kaskar. Acting on the complaint, Sharma picked up Kaskar, who is presently being questioned by sleuths, the sources said.
Earlier, as a part of its charge sheet in IPL spot-fixing case, the Delhi Police has revealed details about most wanted underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s addresses in Pakistan.
Dawood and his aide Chhota Shakeel are "controlling the fixing and betting market" in cricket in India from safe houses in Karachi and Islamabad, the police said in the chargesheet.
Two addresses in Karachi and one in Islamabad have been listed as Dawood’s coordinates in Pakistan. Dawood, India’s most-wanted, designated global terrorist, is the main accused in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
In Islamabad his address has been given as House no 29, Street no 22, P-6/2, Margalla Road.
In Karachi, Dawood’s addresses are Moin Palace near Abdullah Shah Ghazi Dargah in Clifton and 6/A Khyaban Tanzeem Phase V Defence Housing Area.
In fact, information on Dawood’s location in Pakistan was handed over to Pakistan by India last year during secretary-level talks in Islamabad last year.
The details were part of a list of 49 most-wanted handed over to Pakistan by India IANS / News24Bureau
