New Delhi: Dawood Ibrahim's long-time aide Chhotta Shakeel has dismissed the speculation that the underworld don has died after suffering a massive heart attack in Pakistan.

The Pakistani media had on Friday reported that India's most wanted underworld don was in critical condition in Karachi, Pakistan, triggering speculation that 61-year-old Dawood has died.

However, Chhota Shakeel has confirmed that Dawood Ibrahim is not dead. Reports of his health condition could not be confirmed though.

Talking to The Times of India over the phone from Karachi, Shakeel said: “Listening to my voice, do you think any such thing has happened? These are all rumours.”

"Bhai is fit and fine," he added.

Reports had claimed that Dawood was in critical condition in Karachi's Aga Khan Hospital. He is reportedly suffering from multiple ailments for a long time and suffered a sudden heart attack at around 5 pm yesterday.
