Controversial businessman and alleged underworld figure Nafiz Modack.

The latest: The arrest of alleged underworld don Nafiz Modack may clear an air of mystery that surrounds "Mr X" - a man the police say orchestrated the murder of policeman Charl Kinnear as well as the attempted murder of advocate William Booth. 

What happened: The controversial figure was arrested in a dramatic swoop by the police's Special Task Force after his convoy led officers on a high-speed chase through the plush Cape Town suburb of Century City on Thursday afternoon.
