While issuing the production warrant, special judge M G Deshpande said the ED will make all the arrangements to escort the accused and produce him before the court on February 18.
The court further said the probe agency will also resubmit him in the crime concerned (extortion cases).
The ED’s move to interrogate Kaskar has come a day after it conducted multiple searches in Mumbai as part of a money laundering probe into the operations of the underworld, linked illegal property deals and hawala transactions.
The searches were conducted at 10 locations, including those linked to 1993 Mumbai blasts’ mastermind Dawood Ibrahim’s late sister Haseena Parkar, Kaskar and a brother-in-law of gangster Chhota Shakeel in the city.
The action was undertaken under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
The ED’s case is based on an FIR filed recently by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) against Ibrahim, a fugitive gangster, and others. The NIA had filed its criminal complaint under sections of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).
