Dawood Ibrahim, a notorious gangster's nephew died of Covid-19 after being hospitalised for a week at a hospital in Karachi, Pakistan.
Dawood's nephew Siraj Kaskar was infected with corona. He was only 38 years old. Siraj was rushed to a private hospital in Karachi, where he was later put on life support as his condition deteriorated.
While being on life support for two days, on Wednesday morning Siraj's condition further worsened. Siraj's pulse rate went down and he suffered multiple organ failures due to lack of oxygen leading to his death.
Siraj Kaskar was the son of Dawood's elder brother Sabir Kaskar. Siraj Kasarkar was married and was living with Dawood in a bungalow in Kadekot security in Clifton area of Karachi.
Sabir Kaskar was initially leading the gang but was shot dead by gangster Manya Surve on February 12, 1981, at the behest of the Pathan gang.
