Dawood Ibrahim’s nephew arrested from Mumbai airport by crime branch

Information regarding Rizwan was found during the interrogation of Dawood’s hawala operator Ahmed Raza Wadharia who was deported from Dubai two days ago.

Mumbai crime branch’s Anti Extortion Cell (AEC) has arrested Dawood Ibrahim’s, nephew Rizwan Kaskar, from Mumbai airport on Wednesday night, as he was attempting to flee from the country.

Rizwan was wanted in connection with an extortion case. He is currently in police custody, an official confirmed on Thursday.

Rizwan Kaskar is the son of Dawood Ibrahim‘s brother Iqbal Kaskar, who is currently in jail, under the stringent act of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) for running an extortion racket.

Rizwan’s name appeared during the interrogation of Dawood’s hawala operator Ahmed Raza Wadharia who was deported from Dubai two days ago. On the basis of the information given by Raza, a trap was laid and he was detained at the Mumbai International airport.

In a major breakthrough, the Mumbai police with the help of the Indian government had recently, managed to deport D-Company’s main hawala operator Ahmad Raza alias Afroz Vadaria to India. Raza, a close aide of Chhota Shakeel and Faheem Machmach was reportedly entrusted with expanding Dawood’s business in Surat, Mumbai and Thane.

The Mumbai Police team had been tracking Raza from the past year and had also issued a lookout circular (LOC) against him. Raza was detained in Dubai last month after which Indian agencies started the process to get him deported to India.

The Indian government has also been auctioning off the properties of Dawood in India.
