Mumbai: Days after Iqbal Kaskar and his gang was booked in a Rs 3 crore extortion case, his brothers, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and Anees Ibrahim have also been named as wanted in the case.

The Thane Police's crime branch had on Tuesday registered an offence of extortion based on the complaint of a prominent builder against Kaskar and the gang members of Dawood, a police official said.

During the investigation in the case, the alleged role of Dawood and Anees also came to light, following which both were shown as wanted accused in connection with the offence, the official said on Wednesday.

Dawood is the key accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.

Kaskar and his gang members were earlier booked in this fresh case of extorting Rs 3 crore from the builder in north Mumbai, the official said.

This is the third extortion case registered against Kaskar and his gang members after their arrest in connection with a probe into an extortion racket last month, a police official earlier said.

As per the fresh complaint from the builder, Kaskar had allegedly threatened and extorted Rs 3 crore from him over a deal of a 38-acre land in Gorai area, he said.

The police had registered the new complaint of extortion under sections 384 (extortion), 386 (extortion by putting a person in fear of death or grievous hurt) and 387 (putting a person in fear of death or grievous hurt, in order to commit extortion), IPC against Kaskar and his gang at the Thane Nagar police station.

Kaskar and two of his aides -- Mumtaz Sheikh and Israr Ali Jamil Sayyad -- were arrested on September 18 by the Anti-Extortion Cell (AEC) of Thane police, led by "encounter specialist" Pradeep Sharma and his team, in an extortion case of Rs 30 lakh and four flats from a builder.

They had also been booked following another complaint of extortion lodged by a Thane-based jeweller.

Recently, the AEC of the Thane crime branch had arrested Borivali-based businessman Pankaj Gangar in connection with the extortion racket.

Gangar, a close aide of "matka king" Pappu Savla, had been sending Rs 10-15 lakh per month to Dawood's aide Chhota Shakeel, the police had said earlier.

He used to transfer the money to Shakeel through illegal hawala transactions, they had said.

Chhota Shakeel, whose role had also emerged in the extortion racket case, had been declared a wanted accused, the official said.
