Underworld don Dawood Ibrahimâ€™s brother Iqbal Kaskar and his family members have moved the Bombay High Court, seeking to remove an â€˜observationâ€™ on their passports that restricts their travel abroad.
Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had recently made observation that their passports are â€˜valid to travel between UE and India onlyâ€™. Following the remarks, the family, currently settled in Dubai (UE), was unable to visit other countries.
The petition was filed a few days back by Iqbal Kaskar, his wife Rizwana, and other family members challenging the observation. As per the petition, when the Kaskars sought removal of the restriction, the MEA told them that they should seek order to that effect from the court.
Iqbal, who was deported from Dubai in 2003, was later acquitted in a murder case and discharged in Sara-Sahara illegal construction case.
The petition mentions that currently no case is pending against him.
The court has asked the MEA to reply in two weeks.
