Fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim’s brother Iqbal Kaskar has reportedly made another big revelation, as he told police that he had spoken to his elder brother. Kaskar was arrested by Thane Police in Mumbai in connection with an extortion case. Since then, he has revealed a number of things about his brother who is the mastermind behind the Mumbai serial blasts. In The Indian Express report, it has been said that the 52-year-old Kaskar had spoken to Dawood as many as four times, but that was way back in 2010-11. During the calls, he was admonished for consuming alcohol and not looking after himself by his elder brother. Dawood also advised him not to visit bars at night without a bodyguard. In May 2011, after Kaskar’s driver died in an attack, Dawood stopped calling him. He did so as Kaskar was not paying attention to his advice, Kaskar is believed to have told interrogators, said the report quoting sources.
Kaskar and his two associates were arrested for allegedly threatening a prominent builder in Thane and extorting Rs 30 lakh and four flats from him. In his interrogation, Kaskar further said that it was not only Dawood, but rest of his family also kept away from him since he consumed alcohol and they had objections to it, said The Indian Express report quoting an officer. Though the officer confirmed Kaskar confessing to having spoken to Dawood in 2010-11, he added that the cops cannot trust everything he is saying and treating everything as hearsay till further confirmation is not received.

However, he has some health issues, due to which the interrogation is getting interrupted. According to him, once they had to stop questioning Kaskar as his leg was swollen. The officer also brought the possibility of Kaskar being a drug addict, which is further making it difficult to get him to concentrate during interrogation.
