Absconding mafia don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar is apparently suffering from bouts of depression owing to a family hurdle which he is unable to resolve, say police officials.
Who'd have thought they'd get to read something like this!
Yes, DON is suffering from depression. This revelation was made to the police by the arrested gangster Iqbal Kaskar. He has informed the investigators that a deeply worried Dawood is afflicted by bouts of despondency over who would look after and handle his vast underworld empire in the future.
The problem apparently is his third child — and only son — Moin Nawaz D. Kaskar, 31, who has turned his back on the “family business” is a devout Muslim who has chosen to become a Maulana or a cleric-cum-religious teacher.
Now that’s surprising!
“Moin is understood to be deadly against his father’s illegal activities which have given the entire family a notorious reputation worldwide and made many of them wanted fugitives everywhere,” Thane Anti-Extortion Cell head Pradeep Sharma told IANS.
Doesn't this sound like the plot of a Bollywood film?
More so, as his other brother Anees Ibrahim Kaskar is now ageing and reportedly not in robust health, other brothers are deceased and no reliable close relatives available to take over the reins of the empire.
Kaskar also told the investigators that his nephew Moin is now a respected and qualified Maulana, who is a ‘Hafiz-e-Quran’, having memorized the entire Holy Quran which comprises 6,236 verses.
Besides, he has discarded the comforts of the family’s palatial bungalow in the fashionable Clifton area in the posh Saddar suburb of Karachi and opted to live a mendicant’s life in a mosque adjacent to their home.
“It’s clear that Moin, who could have inherited his father’s vast legal and illegal business empires, ironically, has decided to become a man of God and completely shunned a life of luxury which was at his command,” Sharma said.
Earlier, Moin, who is a business management graduate, used to help out his father in some of his line of works, but gradually drifted away to the “divine call of Allah”.
Earlier, Iqbal Kaskar had revealed that Dawood is in excellent health and living in Karachi under the protective eyes of the Pakistani agencies, dismissing all speculation on his physical well-being that keeps floating occasionally.
The investigators are hopeful that in the coming days, he may reveal more information about the Godfather’s family imbroglios and provide clues to the future of his activities.
We guess karma does get back to you!
