The Thane police on Wednesday applied Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against seven accused – Chhota Shakeel, Iqbal Kaskar, Mumtaz Shaikh, Israr Sayyed, Pankaj Gangar, Shammi and Guddu – booked in connection with an extortion case.

Of the five, four have been arrested, while Chhota Shakeel, Shammi and Guddu are wanted.

Kaskar, who was deported from the United Arab Emirates in 2003, is said to be operating his brother Dawood’s real estate business in the city, the police said.

On September 18, the Thane anti-extortion cell arrested Kaskar, Mumtaz and Sayyed for extorting Rs30 lakh from a builder. Gangar was arrested a few days later for his involvement in transferring the money.

Madhukar Pandey, joint commissioner of police, Thane, said, “We have slapped MCOCA against all five accused in the first case of extortion. Two more cases have been filed against Kaskar. We have booked Dawood and Anees Ibrahim in one of the cases.”
