History[ edit ] Ibrahim is believed to control much of the hawala system, which is the very commonly used unofficial system for transferring money and remittances outside the view of official agents. The Department of Treasury keeps a fact sheet on Ibrahim which contains reports of his syndicate having smuggling routes from South Asia, the Middle-East and Africa shared with and used by terrorist organization al-Qaeda.
The Times of India Fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim's younger brother Iqbal Kaskar, who was arrested on Monday from his Mumbai residence along with two aides -real estate agent Mumtaz Shaikh and Israr Ali Jamil Sayyad -for issuing extortion threats to a builder is believed to have collected around Rs crore from developers and jewellers in Thane in the last three years, a cop said.
Police are also probing the role of two local NCP netas who allegedly acted as middlemen between Kaskar and the builders. Thane police commissioner Parambir Singh said they are probing if Dawood himself was part of the extortion racket. Singh said Kaskar has been threatening top builders in Thane since and in one case had extorted Rs 30 lakh from a builder and taken possession of four flats in the plush Rosa Bella complex, whose cumulative worth is close to Rs 5 crore.
While the gang disposed of three of the flats for Rs 30 lakh each, the fourth flat was occupied by Kaskar's aide Shaikh. The commissioner said preliminary probe had revealed the names of certain big builders who were part of the criminal syndicate as they helped the gang get the ransom and would use their connections to evict other builders and grab land parcels.
Police said Shaikh, with the help of Israr, used to collect information about properties and pass it on to Kaskar. Police have detained the brother-in-law of Kaskar's late sister Haseena Parkar and another person. The Thane magistrate remanded all three accused in police custody for eight days.

Iqbal Kaskar told the investigators that a deeply worried Dawood is afflicted by bouts of despondency over who would look after and handle his vast underworld empire in future. More so, as his other brother Anees Ibrahim Kaskar is aging and reportedly not in robust health, other brothers are deceased and no reliable close relatives available to take over the reins of the empire.
