The police is set to unearth a major nexus between Dawood Ibrahim and politicians from both Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. The police had recently arrested Tariq Parveen, a close aide of Dawood in connection with the murder of two cable operators.
The police say that his nexus with politicians is under probe. Photographs of him posing with several politicians including an MLA from Mumbai have surfaced which has led the police to probe this angle.
Taqiq 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.
