In October last year, the police had registered an offence of extortion based on the complaint of the builder against Iqbal Kaskar and the gang members of Dawood. According to the builder's complaint, Kaskar had threatened and extorted Rs 3 crore from him over a deal of a 38-acre land in Gorai area.

"The chargesheet, which runs into thousands of pages, lists the evidences against the accused," the police official said, adding, "The vital documents attached to the chargesheet include papers related to the land deal along with the payment proof. It also includes statement of the witnesses."
