Dawood's nephew arrested at Mumbai airport

Mumbai Police has arrested Dawood Ibrahim’s nephew Rizwan Kaskar in connection with an extortion case, an official said Thursday.

Rizwan Kaskar, the son of Ibrahim’s brother Iqbal Kaskar, was arrested on Wednesday night from the international airport here when he was trying to flee the country, the official said.

Iqbal Kaskar was also earlier arrested in an extortion case and is currently lodged at a jail in neighbouring Thane. Two days ago, Mumbai Police’s anti-extortion cell arrested Ahmed Raza Wadharia, a close aide of Ibrahim’s gang member Fahim Machmach, in an extortion case, a senior official of the Crime Branch said.
