Mushtaq Abdul Razak Memon better known as Tiger Memon is a gangster-turned terrorist and the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case and is wanted by the Interpol and the CBI. He is infamous for turning traitor against the country and city where he grew up and made his living. He is married to Reshma Memon and has three children.[1] His role as the prime accused in the blasts along with Dawood Ibrahim has been confirmed by the Special court after the conviction of the other accused in the case.[2] There is reason to believe that Tiger Memon is now in Karachi, Pakistan and moves under aliases to evade authorities. He was recently reported to have opened a restaurant in Dubai[3] His ties with Dawood Ibrahim, also known as Ibrahim Kaskar the infamous underworld kingpin have been reviewed and are concrete, for Tiger is believed to be his right hand. Tiger Memon recruited frustrated Muslim youth to carry out the bombings[citation needed]. However, he left his minions, abandoned his family to face the music and flew out of Mumbai to hide in Dubai, the morning before the blasts. His fortune has been estimated to be in the millions[citation needed], with operations in drug dealing, money laundering, property, stocks and industry. The D-company as it is infamously known has grown thanks to Dawood. Tiger Memon is one of his most trusted henchmen[citation needed]. On September 12, 2006, The special TADA court hearing the long-drawn case around the 1993 Bombay bombings convicted four members of the Memon family - Yakub, Essa, Rubina and Yusuf.
