Maharashtra denies Tiger Memon's 'revenge' call

Mumbai: The Maharashtra government has denied that absconding mafia don Mushtaque alias Tiger Memon allegedly called up his mother and threatened to avenge his brother Yakub Memon`s hanging last week, top officials said here on Friday.

The Mumbai police, too, denied any such conversation as having taken place, as reported by a leading financial daily.

"We want to clarify that we don`t have such intercepted conversation and we also clarify that such said transcript is not of Mumbai police," said DCP Dhananjay Kulkarni in a statement.

According to the report in the daily, Tiger Memon purportedly had a conversation with his mother Hanifa Memon at her Mahim residence here on July 30 around 5.30 am - barely an hour before Yakub was hanged in Nagpur Central Jail.

In the conversation with a weeping Hanifa, Tiger Memon allegedly "vowed" to "avenge" his brother`s death and "make them pay for it".

The newspaper has stated it is in possession of the transcript of the entire three-minute conversation conducted over the Internet, with the call bouncing from one IP address to another, making it difficult to track.

It is not clear who recorded the mother-son dialogue.
