Mumbai: A witness in the money laundering case against NCP Minister Nawab Malik told the Law Enforcement Directorate that Iqbal Kaskar told him that his elder brother, accused of terrorism fugitive Pakistan-based Dawood Ibrahim sends Rs 10 lakh to his siblings every month.
“Kaskar told me that Dawood would send the money through his men. He said he too would get Rs 10 lakh every month. A few times he showed me wads of cash and said he got the money from Dawoodbhai,” Khalid Usman Shaikh told ED.
Khalid’s brother, who was Kaskar’s childhood friend, was killed in a gang war. He was also known to Dawood’s sister Haseena Parkar’s driver-bodyguard, Salim Patel. Khalid told ED that Patel once told him that he, along with Haseena, were extorting money using Dawood’s name and encroaching on properties. ED alleged that Patel, along with Haseena, also illegally seized the Goawala compound in the Kurla region of Mumbai, which they then sold to Malik’s family.
Several witnesses, including Kaskar and Haseena’s son, Alishah (29), also spoke of Dawood residing in Pakistan. “His wife’s name is Mehjabeen. He has five children. A son named Moin. All his daughters are married. His son also got married,” said Kaskar, who is arrested on charges of extortion and money laundering. Kaskar added that another brother, Anees, accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial explosions, also lives in Pakistan.
Alishah told ED, “I have heard from sources and family members that Dawood is in Karachi…occasionally, such as Eid, Diwali and other festive occasions, Mehjabeen… . would get in touch with my wife and sisters.”
