New Delhi: The 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case mastermind Dawood Ibrahim and Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed are in Pakistan and government has pressed for their extradition to India, Lok Sabha was informed on Tuesday.
Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said when he had met his Pakistani counterpart, he had demanded that Ibrahim and Saeed be handed over to India.
He had told the Pakistan Interior Minister that the two could be Karachi or elsewhere in that country.
In reply to a supplementary by Ananth Kumar (BJP), Shinde said at the Interpol Conference held recently, New Delhi had agitated on the issue and had pressed that Pakistan be asked to hand over Dawood to India.
The Home Minister made these remarks after NDA members sparred with the treasury benches when Minister of State for Home R P N Singh while replying to the supplementary said opposition tries to portray the UPA government as weak on terror.

As both sides traded charges, Shinde rose to reply to the supplementary question.
