India asks Pakistan to hand over Dawood Ibrahim

India asks Pakistan to hand over  Dawood Ibrahim

Amid reports that Dawood Ibrahim has been tracked down in Karachi, India on Saturday asked Pakistan to hand over the underworld don to New Delhi, saying enough evidence has been given to Islamabad on his involvement in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and his deputy Kiren Rijiju said India had been asking Pakistan to hand over Dawood as it has given evidence.

Rijiju said India “has enough evidence” to suggest that Dawood has been in Pakistan and living in Karachi. “Pakistan should now act and hand him over to us,” he told reporters.

He urged Pakistan to cooperate with India’s fight against terrorism. “If it is serious (on fighting terrorism), Pakistan should cooperate with us. We want it to act on evidence,” he added.  In Lucknow, Singh said Dawood “is India’s most wanted terrorist and India has repeatedly asked Pakistan to hand him over to it. Wait and watch,” he said to a question as to when Dawood would be caught by Indian authorities.

Both Singh and Rijiju were asked about Dawood amid media reports that the don “is
running his business empire from Pakistan” and the money he “is being spent on terror operations.”

A webportal, NewsMobile, claimed that it has received tapes from western diplomatic sources. It said that Dawood had been tracked down in Karachi, “alive and kicking, and is heard expanding his real estate business”.
