Pradeep said that Iqbal informed the police that his elder brother, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, was going through depression. This was reportedly due to the absence of someone to manage his business after his only son, Moin Ibrahim, who distanced himself from the family.

    Moin is understood to be deadly against his father’s illegal activities which have given the entire family a notorious reputation worldwide and made many of them wanted fugitives everywhere. His son is practically estranged from the family and all its businesses since the past few years, but it is not clear if he is on speaking terms with his father.”
