5) Tiger Memon

June 24, 2008
If Ayub Memon's role was mainly restricted to funding the Mumbai blasts, Tiger -- or Mushtaq Abdul Razzaq -- Memon was the mastermind, who plotted the entire blasts sitting in his Mahim home.

He is also said to among those who attended a secret meeting -- chaired by Dawood Ibrahim -- outside India where the idea to retaliate for the Babri Masjid riots took shape.

He recruited frustrated Muslim youth, one of whom backed out in the final days leading to the bombings and ratted on the gang on being arrested.

The CBI says he too, like most Dawood associates, lives in Karachi. He too, like Shakeel, is said to have invested heavily in property and is even said to have opened a restaurant in Dubai a couple of years ago.
