Don’t know where Dawood is, govt tells Lok Sabha
Four years later the India’s Government handed over a list of 50 most wanted fugitives, including Dawood Ibrahim, to Pakistan, the Lok Sabha was today informed that Dawood’s location is not known to the government and once he is located, his extradition process will be initiated.
State Home Minister Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary said Dawood was an accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case and a red corner notice had been issued against him.
“The United Nations Security Council has also issued a special announcement against him. The matter has not been placed yet. The expulsion process with respect to Dawood Ibrahim would be initiated once the matter is placed,” he replied to the Lower House.
The MHA at a meeting of Home Secretaries in March 2011, handed over a virtual blacklist of 50 most wanted terrorists, which included hijackers, fugitives and even Pakistan army officers, to Islamabad.
The list bear the names of men who have committed acts of terrorism in India since 1993 and were either hiding or being sheltered in Pakistan.
This listed the names of Dawood Ibrahim, Memon Ibrahim, alias Tiger Memon, Memon Ayub Abdul Razak, Anis Ibrahim Kaskar Shaikh, Anwar Ahmed Haji Jamal, Mohammed Ahmed Dosa and Javed Chikna, all involved in the 1993 serial bombing in Mumbai, then known as Bombay.
