India aware of Dawood's presence in Pak, says PC

The minister said he was not surprised that the United States has now discovered Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence’s (ISI) links with terror groups, including the Haqqani network.

Asked whether India’s most-wanted fugitive Dawood Ibrahim has been staying in Karachi where he recently hosted a grand marriage of his son Moin at his mansion White House, Chidambaram said he was aware of the fact and he had already raised the issue with his Pakistani counterpart Rehman Malik.

“We know where Dawood lives. We have raised it with Pakistan... they deny he lives there. What is it we can do? Some day that will also be exposed. I have raised it with my counterpart,” Chidambaram said.

On the clemency petition of death row convict Afzal Guru, Chidambaram said the President was yet to make a decision. He refused to comment on the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly’s resolution on the Parliament attack convict.

On the Telangana stir, the home minister said there are four parties, including the Congress, which are yet to articulate their views on the issue. He said the government should be given some time to work out a solution.
