UNDERWORLD don Dawood Ibrahim’s younger brother Iqbal Kaskar was arrested on Monday by Anti-extortion cell of the neighboring Thane police in an ongoing case of extortion.
He was arrested by encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma.
Sharma was recently reinstated and posted with the Thane
crime branch’s anti-extortion cell.

According to sources, a businessman had received calls from some gang members of Iqbal Kaskar demanding extortion. Sharma acted on the businessman’s complaint and picked up Iqbal on Monday.
He is presently being questioned by the Thane anti-extortion cell officials.
Iqbal was deported from Dubai earlier and was booked in a MCOCA case.

The arrest led to speculations about possible action against India’s most wanted criminal Dawood Ibrahim. Last week, Union minister VK Singh had said “We will not talk about Dawood at all. Certain things are happening. We can’t let the cat out of the bag.”

In 2003, Iqbal Kaskar was deported to India from the United Arab Emirates. He was reportedly wanted in a murder case, as well as his alleged role in the controversial Sara Sahara case, where a building came up illegally on government land. Four years later, a court acquitted him in both cases.
