Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s brother Iqbal Ibrahim Kaskar, who is lodged in Thane Central Jail, was referred to JJ Hospital by jail authorities on Monday due to his ill-health.

Kaskar complained of chest pain and giddiness, following which he was brought to JJ Hospital in South Mumbai’s Byculla area at 10.15 pm.

He was examined at the hospital and provided necessary medical treatment. Since his condition was stable, he was taken back to the Thane Central Jail during the wee hours of Tuesday.

Thane anti-extortion cell (AEC) arrested Kaskar from his Mumbai residence in September last year on the charges of extortion after a complaint was filed by a builder who was facing extortion threats since 2013.

The builder was taken into confidence and a complaint of extortion was registered at the Kasarvadavali Police Station.

Kaskar, who was deported from the UAE in 2003, is suspected to have been operating the real estate business of his brother in Mumbai.
