Mumbai, Sep 14 (IANS) Seven people named in the killing of an aide of Dawood Ibrahim’s younger brother Iqbal Kaskar in May this year have been booked under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA), police said Wednesday.
“MCOCA has been invoked against the seven accused,” Joint Commissioner of Police Himanshu Roy told reporters here.
The accused are Abdul Rashid Shaikh alias Raju, Adnan Hidayat Sayyed, Indralal Khatri, Bilal Mustafa Ali Sayyed, Umed-ur-Rehman Shaikh, Asif Jaan Mohammad Shaikh and D.K. Rao.
According to police, Khatri and Sayyed pumped five bullets into Kaskar’s driver and bodyguard Arif Bael in south Mumbai’s Pakmodia Street on the night of May 17.
However, Kaskar was not in the vehicle when the shooting took place.
Wanted in connection with a murder and land-grabbing cases, Kaskar was extradited from Dubai in 2003. However, he was acquitted in the cases for lack of evidence.
Presently, he is involved in the real estate business. Dawood Ibrahim, according to Indian officials, is holed up in Pakistan, having fled India after the 1993 Mumbai bombings.
