The Thane police team raided Iqbal Kaskar, the younger brother of Dawood Ibrahim on Monday night. While the cops raided him, he was having biryani and watching a reality show on television.
Interestingly, the police let Kaskar finish his biryani before taking him to custody. Kaskar was amazed on the raids. He was saying what I have done. Cops raided Kaskar in extortion case against him.
Kaskar was raided while he was at the Haseena Parkar’s residence (Dawood's late sister) at Gordon Hall Apartments on Sophia Zuber Road in Nagpada in central Mumbai.
“It was around 9.15 pm when Thane Police’s Quick Response Team (QRT), equipped with highly sophisticated 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.
According to the officials, the sleuths gave him time to finish his dinner and then took him into the custody along with three others who were present inside the room.
“Kaskar was taken into private vehicles, which swiftly left the area, before 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.
