Iqbal Kaskar Arrested by NCB
This action has been taken by the Mumbai team of NCB against Dawood Ibrahim’s D Company. Iqbal Kaskar’s custody has been taken on a production warrant in the drug case. Recently, two caches of charas were recovered in action by NCB. Some henchmen of Punjab used to bring these caches from Kashmir to Mumbai. These henchmen used to come from Kashmir to Mumbai by bike carrying drugs. A supply of about 25 kg of charas was recovered.
Drugs, Terror and the Underworld Connection
When the NCB recovered the caches of charas, the bureau got the news of the involvement of D Company in the matter. During interrogation and investigation, NCB came to know about the supply and sale of drugs and traces of Terror Funding from the proceeds of drugs. As soon as the connection of drugs, terror and underworld came to the fore, the NCB increased the speed of its investigation, and in this sequence, Iqbal Kaskar was arrested in the drug case on Wednesday.

After raids at several places in Mumbai, when the arrested accused were interrogated, the connection of supply of charas was found to be linked to terror funding and Dawood Ibrahim’s brother Iqbal Kaskar. On this basis, NCB has taken remand of Iqbal, who is lodged in Thane jail.
