New Delhi: As Narendra Modi is all set to become India`s next Prime Minister, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim has changed his location and shifted his base to Af-Pak border, a report said on Tuesday.
Interestingly during his high voltage elelction campaign, Modi in an interview to a Gujarati TV news channel had hinted at hot pursuit against Dawood.
With the BJP strongman now coming to power, the intelligence unit feels that Modi would go behind the underworld don, who is considered to be the mastermind of 1993 Mumbai blasts.
The report says that Dawood is apprehensive of Modi`s intention and fears a commando style operation, similar to the US raid in Abbottabad, which killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Fearing this, the underworld don has changed his base and asked the Pakistan`s ISI to enhance his security.
Not only Dawood, but his men in Mumbai have also fled the financial capital, known to be the hub of underworld in India.
Former director of Intelligence Bureau Ajit Doval on Monday met PM-elect Modi and gave him a brief on security challenges facing the country.
Modi is expected to seek help of 69-year-old Doval, who gave an insight to the BJP leader Modi about the threats that exist within and from outside the country.
Speaking to DNA, former IPS officer YC Pawar, the man who effected the first breakthrough in the investigation into the March 1993 Mumbai serial blasts masterminded by Dawood in tandem with Pakistan`s ISI, is of the opinion that the don can indeed be brought to India said, “Modi is a man of tremendous will power and a go-getter. These qualities are needed at the topmost level to operationalise a plan to eject Dawood out of Pakistan. I am not saying this as a member of BJP but as a professional cop who has dealt with organised crime for several years. It should not be a difficult task."
