Riyaz Bhati, an alleged aide of fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim, has been arrested for allegedly forging documents to get the membership of a club of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), the police said on Tuesday.
Mr Bhati, 52, allegedly forged documents of the city- based Wilson College to obtain membership of the MCA club located in Bandra-Kurla Complex, a police official said.
He became member of the club in 2013, the official added.
