Dawood’s properties auctioned
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.
