The stepping in by the IB will help the Thane police probe the case further. Since the main accused Dawood and his brother Anees are out of the country, the IB would be in a better position to source information on them.

The Enforcement Directorate too has stepped in and is probing the financial transactions. The ED is probing if and how Kaskar laundered extorted money outside India as well as the alleged funding of Islamic preacher Zakir Naik by the Dawood gang. It is already investigating Naik in a separate PMLA case.

So far Kaskar has revealed the fact that he was in touch with his brother Anees and Dawood's wife Mehzabeen, who would act as a mediator between the two brothers. During his joint questioning by the IB and Thane police, Kaskar mentioned Mehzabeen's visit to Dubai last year.
