Cops let Kaskar finish his biryani before taking him into custody
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 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 and his aides were arrested for running an extortion racket against builders, land owners, businessmen as well as jewellers, he said.
