A key aide of Dawood Ibrahim has been arrested by the anti-extortion cell of the Thane Police in Maharashtra. He has been identified as Tarik Pravin and is 51 years old.
He was arrested in connection with a two-decade-old murder case in Mumbra. He was arrested in south Mumbai. The police say that he handled Dawood's real-estate business in Mumbai for several years. He was also in constant touch with Dawood.
The police say that he was wanted in the 1998 Mumbra murder case. We got to know about his location through our informers following which we immediately went to the spot and picked him up, the police said.
This is not the first time that Pravin has been arrested. He was picked earlier by the Mumbai and Lucknow police, but his involvement in the murder case was not known at that point in time.
