Dawood Ibrahim's aide Tariq Parveen has been sent to police custody till February 13 by Esplanade court here in connection with an extortion case. Speaking to reporters, Tariq's lawyer Quresh Aftab, said: "A complaint was filed against Tariq in 2013 in connection with an extortion case. However, he has nothing to do with it. The police are doing all this just to take him under remand. We do not understand why the police have not taken any action regarding this case in the past six to seven years."
"If Ibrahim is involved in the extortion case then why have the police not taken any action so far? He has not been issued any notice or summon," he added. Tariq was arrested by Mumbai Crime Branch on Sunday from Dongri area. "Tariq Parveen, a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim, was arrested from Dongri today, in connection with an extortion case," said S Rastogi, Joint Commissioner of Police, Mumbai.
He added that Tariq was arrested as per the inputs received from another accused in an extortion case. "Ejaz Yusuf Lakdawala (arrested earlier in an extortion case) had revealed that Tariq used to help him with the extortion," Rastogi said. The arrest was made by the Anti Extortion cell of the Mumbai Police, based on a complaint lodged at the MRA Marg police station.
Apart from Tariq, the names of Dawood Ibrahim and his associates Ejaz Lakdawala, Salim Furniturewala have also been included in this FIR.
