Dawood, Osama figure on Forbes' most wanted list

The list, carried in the latest edition of the Forbes magazine, also has Mexico’s most powerful drug trafficker Joaquin Guzman in No 2.

The magazine, which has been releasing a list of most wanted fugitives for the past three years, pointed out that Dawood, who is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, possibly had a hand in aiding LeT execute the 2008 Mumbai attacks and also shares smuggling routes with al-Qaeda.

“Though the Pakistani government denies it, Ibrahim is probably in Pakistan, where he has important ties to the powerful intelligence service,” it said.
The article described Dawood as “the most wanted man in India” has for years led a 5,000-member criminal syndicate known as D-Company.

“The organised crime group has engaged in everything from narcotics to contract killing, working mostly in Pakistan, India and the United Arab Emirates,” the magazine said. Bin Laden and Guzman hold their top ranks from Forbes’ Most Wanted Fugitives list that first came out in 2008 but Dawood, the most wanted man in India for his suspected role in the 1993 Mumbai bombings that killed 257 people, has moved up from the fourth spot to the third.

The article pointed out that since the 2008 list was published not a single one of the world’s most notorious criminals has been brought to justice.
