Hand over Dawood, India tells Pakistan
India on Saturday asked Pakistan to hand over underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, saying enough evidence had been given to it on the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.
Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said India’s stand had been very clear for a long time — that Dawood was in Pakistan and was living in Karachi. “We have been asking Pakistan to hand him over for a long time. Already, enough evidence had been given to Pakistan. “Pakistan should now act and hand him over to us,” he told reporters here.
Mr. Rijiju said Pakistan should cooperate with India in fight against terrorism. “We want it to act on evidence,” he said.
Web portal NewsMobile had, based on tapes received from western diplomatic sources, said “Dawood has been tracked in Karachi, alive and kicking, and is heard expanding his real estate business.”
“This clearly proves that the underworld don is blatantly running his terror supermarket from Pakistan and his real estate interests are helping him generate enough funds to expand his operations,” said its editor-in-chief Saurabh Shukla.
