Has India's dossier on 'terror' forced Pakistan to shift underworld don Dawood from Karachi?
Pakistani Army and the ISI have changed underworld don and one of India's most wanted Dawood Ibrahim location from Karachi to country's North region Muri, as per reports.
Delhi: Pakistani Army and the ISI have shifted underworld don and one of India's most wanted Dawood Ibrahim from Karachi to country's North region Muri, as per reports on Sunday.
There are also reports that Dawood's wife and younger daughter have accompanied the mafia don.
Also, Dawood's younger brother, Anees and his family too have reportedly been shifted along with the mastermind of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.
ISI has its safe house in Muri and Dawood has supposedly stayed there before.
In evidence to show that Dawood is holed up in Pakistan, a dossier prepared by India listed nine residences of the underworld don in that country and stated that he is known to frequently change his locations and addresses there.
The information about the residences in Pakistan, including one bought near the house of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of late former PM Benazir Bhutto, in Karachi two years ago is contained in the dossier, as per PTI.
Pakistan has been consistently saying that Dawood is not living in Pakistan.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, meanwhile, said yesterday that Dawood is permanently living in Pakistan though he may be changing locations in that country even as BJP said there was "irrefutable evidence" of India's most wanted criminal's presence there and that it can not longer remain in denial.
"Such people keep changing their location. But he is permanently living in Pakistan," Singh told had reporters in Lucknow.
The dossier also said that Dawood has three Pakistani passports which he frequently uses to travel.
Dawood is wanted in India for the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai in which 257 people were killed and nearly a thousand injured.
He is also accused of masterminding other terror attacks and of money laundering and extortion.
The dossier said a new residence Dawood bought is located at Shireen Jinah Colony near Ziauddin Hospital, Cliffton, Karachi.
Apart from this house, the other places where he regularly frequents are - Moin Palace, near Abdullah Shah Gazi Dargah, Cliffton, Karachi, 6A Khyabar Tanzeem, Phase V, Defence Housing area, Karachi, ISI safe house located on Bhoubhan Hill, around 20 km from Islamabad on Islamabad-Muree Road, P 6/2, street no.22, House no. 29, Maragalla Road, Islamabad, 17 C P Bazar Society, Block 7-8, Amir Khan Road, Karachi, 30th street in Phase 6 extension of DHA in Karachi, 8th floor of Mohran Square near Pardesi House 3, Tawar area, Cliffton, Karachi and a palatial bunglow in the hilly area of Nooriabad, Karachi.
According to the dossier, Dawood has three Pakistani passports -- first one issued in Rawalpindi (No.G-866537), second in Karachi (No. C-267185) and a third one which was also issued in Karachi (No. KC-285901).
