New Delhi: India seems to be focusing more on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim as its list of most wanted fugitives, who are hiding in Pakistan, contains 20 names from his gang.

Apart from Dawood, the mastermind of the 1993 serial bombings in Mumbai, the other fugitives in the list are Memon Ibrahim alias Tiger Memon, Shaikh Shakeel alias Chhota Shakeel, Memon Ayub Abdul Razak, Anis Ibrahim Kaskar Shaikh and Mohammed Ahmed Dosa, all involved in the terror attack, which had claimed over 250 lives and injured 700 others.

The terrorist act was part of a series of 13 bomb explosions that took place in Mumbai on March 12, 1993. The coordinated attacks were the most destructive bomb explosions in Indian history which was coordinated by Dawood Ibrahim.

Key Dawood gang members Anwar Ahmed Haji Jamal, Javed Patel, Slaim Abdul Gani Gazi, Riyaz Abu Bakar Khatri, Munaf Abdul Majid Halari, Mohammad Tainur, Khan Bashir Ahmed Ainul Haq Khan, Yakub Khan, Mohammad Shafi Memon and Irfan Ahmed Gulzar also figure in the list.

Other members of the D Company who also find mention in the list of India's most wanted fugitives are Feroz Abdul Rashid Khan, Ishaq Atta Husain alias Ali Moosa, Sagir Sabir Ali Shaikh and Aftab Batki.

Many of these Dawood gang members were involved in terrorist acts, smuggling of arms, attempt to murder of prominent persons and circulating Fake Indian Currency Notes.

Interestingly, except one, all these members of the D Company are Indian citizens and now hiding in Pakistan to evade law here.
