Fugitive mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar is longing to return!

Fugitive mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar is longing to return to India, but on preconditions that have been rejected by Government of India, said prominent criminal lawyer Shyam Keswani who is the lawyer for the don’s younger brother Iqbal Ibrahim Kaskar.

Dawood is wanted in several serious cases ranging from extortion, drug trafficking and murder to terrorism, including 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. He was designated as a global terrorist in 2003 and was later named number three on world’s 10 most wanted criminals.

According to media reports, criminal lawyer Shyam Keswani, speaking to reporters on Tuesday, said that one of the preconditions of Dawood is that he should be lodged only in the high-secure precincts of Arthur Road Central Jail (ARCJ) in Mumbai.

“He had also conveyed his intentions through (former union minister and eminent lawyer) Ram Jethmalani a few years ago but the Indian government has not entertained any of his preconditions to return,” Keswani was reported to have said.

The ARCJ is the same prison where the Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab was lodged for nearly four years till his hanging for his role in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

Keswani’s statement on Dawood’s desire to return came more than six months after Maharashtra Navnirman Sena President Raj Thackeray made a similar revelation in Mumbai, said media reports. Thackeray had claimed that not only was Dawood keen to come back but he was reportedly negotiating a ‘settlement’ with the Modi government. The MNS chief further said Dawood was very sick and wanted to breathe his last in India.

In August last, Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi had said that Dawood was in Pakistan and Islamabad was creating hurdles in getting him back to India. He, however, had asserted that the government was taking all the actions, according to PIT reports.

During the hearing in Thane court on Tuesday, Dawood’s brother Iqbal Kaskar informed court that he had talked to the mafia don on phone prior to his arrest. When the judge at the Thane court sought to know the contact number of Dawood, Kaskar said there was no number on the phone and he does not have any idea of Dawood’s location.

In September last, according to a report in Financial Express, officials had said that Dawood’s brother Iqbal Kaskar confessed to the interrogators from the Intelligence Bureau and the Thane police’s crime branch that he was in Pakistan.

Iqbal was sent to police custody till Friday, March 9 by a Special Court in a land-grab and extortion case filed against him by the Thane Anti-Extortion Cell (AEC). At least two others wanted in this case — Bhavar Kothar and Bharat Jain — are absconding, said AEC chief Pradeep Sharma.

The case pertains to alleged extortion of Rs 3 crore from a builder in a deal involving a 38-acre plot of land worth crores of rupees in Gorai, a coastal village in south-west Thane.

This is the same case in which, for the first time, the police have shown the three Kaskar siblings – Dawood, Anees (both absconding) and Iqbal – as accused.
