Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s youngest brother Humayun Kaskar died in Karachi, Pakistan, on Thursday, said sources in the Mumbai police. He was suffering from cancer.
Unlike his brothers, Humayun who was in his mid-forties, was not involved in any crime, sources said. His elder brothers Dawood, Noorul and Anees, all have criminal records in Mumbai, among other places.
Humayun left from Mumbai with his family in the late eighties after the Pydhonie riots and moved initially to Dubai and later to Pakistan. Humayun stayed in Islamabad with his wife Noora, who died a few years ago, and children Anees and Mustaqeem, said source.
Humayun was suffering from cancer for the past seven years and his treatment was going on in a Karachi hospital. Humayun was buried around 5am on Friday, reports said.
He used to run a garment shop in Dubai, apart from looking after other family businesses. He married Dawood’s sister-in-law in 1996 in Karachi. Shabbir, Dawood’s eldest brother, was killed by the Pathan brothers of the Karim Lala gang in the early eighties.
Dawood has been booked in the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts case. Dawood was actively involved until 1993 in silver smuggling and also entered the drug trade. Chhota Shakeel, who is allegedly very close to Dawood, handles all activities such as extortion and other dealings in Mumbai, sources said.
