Da­wood’s prop­er­ties auc­tioned

Oman Daily Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

MUM­BAI: Fugi­tive mafia don Da­wood Ibrahim Kaskar’s three prime prop­er­ties in south Mum­bai fi­nally found a buyer on Tues­day — the Saifee Burhani Uphlift­ment Trust (SBUT), run by the Da­woodi Bohra com­mu­nity, an of­fi­cial said here.

The prop­er­ties to be ac­quired by SBUT in­clude a res­tau­rant, Ho­tel Rau­naq Afroz, also known as Delhi Zaika, a two-storey Shab­nam Guest House and six ten­e­ments in the Da­mar­wala Build­ing.

All the prop­er­ties fall­ing within one kilo­me­tre ra­dius in the con­gested Bhendi Bazar area were owned by Da­wood and other Kaskar fam­ily mem­bers.

They were taken over by the gov­ern­ment af­ter the March 1993 Mum­bai se­rial bomb blasts and were put on the auc­tion block at least thrice in the past, in­clud­ing the last un­suc­cess­ful at­tempt two years ago.
