Brother of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, Iqbal Ibrahim Kaskar on Thursday made some startling revelations during interrogation by the Thane police and Intelligence Bureau. Iqbal confirmed that his brother Dawood is in Pakistan.

Police officers investigating the case said that Iqbal has provided some vital information related to Dawood and his whereabouts which will help in building a strong case.

Iqbal Kaskar and two others were arrested on Monday by Thane police after a complaint by a builder. Thane Anti-Extortion Cell picked up Kaskar from his Mumbai residence.

According to police, Kaskar had been threatening builders on behalf of his brother Dawood Ibrahim to extort money and some of the builders had already paid huge sums of money to Kaskar.

Encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma led the team of police that picked up Kaskar. Sharma was recently reinstated and posted with the Thane crime branch’s anti extortion cell.
