Nariman Point - NCP leader Nawab Malik claimed that Riyaz Bhati is connected with Dawood Ibrahim which was later refuted by Riyaz Bhati. He also alleged that Riyaz helped BJP spokesperson Ashish Shelar to win the MLC elections. However, at the same time, he admitted that Riyaz Bhati was with NCP for four months, for which he apologised. But he kept saying that he will not spare Riyaz. “I will not sit quite till I send Riyaz to jail. BJP and Ashish Shelar are using the Dawood Ibrahim’s connections”, alleged Nawab Malik.
