Mumbai, July 29: The Maharastra government on Monday slapped Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) on Dawood Ibrahim's nephew Rizwan Kaskar. The ACP Crime Branch has been reportedly given the charge to investigate the extortion nexus which includes Chota Shakeel and Fahim Muchmuch, who were wanted in the case. Rizwan was arrested by Mumbai Police Anti-Extortion Cell (AEC) on Wednesday night from Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.

According to the police, around 100 cases of extortion and others are registered against Chota Shakeel for the past few years and over 40 cases are on Fahim Machmach. These two people are considered as wing leaders and as per the MCOCA, the ACP has the authority to move the MCOCA against the wing leaders, which has done in the Sessions Court.

Earlier on Sunday, reports arrived that though wanted fugitive Dawood Ibrahim's assets are frozen across the world, he continues to invest money, earned through his organised crime syndicate, in the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX). The Indian agencies are gathering clinching evidence against Ibrahim's investment of illegal money into the PSX, earned through his crime syndicate, which primarily flourishes on drug smuggling, gun-running, Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN) racket and extortion.

Currently detained in a London jail, D-company points man Jabir Moti, runs more than five front capital securities companies, all operating from the Karachi Stock Exchange, merged with the PSX in 2016. Intelligence says D-company has also invested heavily, through various shell companies in Habib Bank's subsidiary, Habib Metropolitan Financial Services (HMFS), a top equity brokerage firm in Pakistan.
