Schoolboys hatch plan to nab Dawood

Inspired by the crime-thriller movie D-Day, three ninth standard students from the prestigious St Michael’s School here hatched a plan to nab gangster Dawood Ibrahim from Pakistan and share the $25 million reward put on the fugitive’s head.

So one fine morning, Vipin, Satyam and Umar Mallick left their homes for school but did not enter the campus. Instead, they boarded a train and went to Kolkata from where they had planned to go to Pakistan. Umar’s grandmother reportedly lives in Karachi.

The trio had heard Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde saying that Dawood was in Pakistan and would be apprehended soon. The boys then searched the Internet for a possible Dawood hideout, which eventually turned out to be the Abbottabad residence of Osama bin Laden. 

In the meantime, their parents lodged a missing case, following which the Patna police constituted a special team to trace them out. 

The boys by then eventually realised that hunting Dawood was not an easy task. Realising their folly they returned from Kolkata and when one of them reached home, the police were informed about their misadventure.

“In Kolkata, these boys wanted to form a group of 30 people who could help them nab the fugitive. As per the plan, once they succeeded in nabbing Dawood, they would share the $25 million bounty and then lead a lavish life,” said a police officer investigating the case.

“All the three were least interested in studies. But their idea is mind-boggling and hair-raising. We would request the parents to take care of their children all the time and keep a tab on their activities,” said Senior SP of Patna Manu Maharaj.
