New Delhi: India's most wanted man and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is planning to carry out terror attacks in Delhi, a report said on Tuesday.

The fugitive don, who is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, has ordered his men to carry out deadly blasts on the lines of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, in which 257 people were killed.

The report said that the fugitive don, who was until now believed to be only focussing on pumping fake currency, drugs into India, has now decided to launch terror attacks across the country.

Intelligence Bureau officials have intercepted some messages, which say that the D-Company has hired some men in India and directed them to carry out serial blasts in the national capital.

It is being learnt that few men from Madhya Pradesh have been given the task and they are reported to have already moved to Delhi.

Delhi Police and other security agencies have been put on high alert and are trying to nab Dawood's henchmen.

Report further states that the security officials have the details of the men in question and are working 24X7 to trace them.

Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi Metro, Vidhan Sabha, New Delhi Railway station are the possible terror targets.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh has repeatedly maintained that government will leave no stone unturned to bring back the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts mastermind, believed to be hiding in Pakistan with the patronage of ISI.
