Iqbal Kaskar detained

In February 2015, Kaskar and his two associates were booked on charges of extortion and assault following a complaint by an estate agent. A FIR was then registered at Byculla police station after a complaint by Salim Shaikh, an estate agent, that Kaskar and his men had demanded Rs three lakh after thrashing him.

The 48-year-old victim, who was a resident of Byculla, first approached the local police station where the FIR was registered and then the matter was transferred to J J Marg police.

Kaskar had been deported to India from the United Arab Emirates in 2003.

Dawood's fifth sibling was wanted in a murder case and his alleged role in the controversial Sara Sahara case where a building came up illegally on government land but a court acquitted him in both the cases in 2007.
