New Delhi: A nexus among underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and banned groups Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Indian Mujahideen (IM) and Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) has surfaced during probe into a case against terrorist Abdul Karim Tunda, Delhi Police has told a court here.
In its supplementary charge sheet filed against top LeT bomb expert Tunda, special cell of Delhi Police said that he had met Dawood in Pakistan in 2002 through BKI to discuss about carrying out terror activities in India.

"In 2002, BKI`s Lakhbir Singh`s friend Iqbal Bunty had taken Tunda to Dawood Ibrahim`s house in Karachi in Pakistan. Dawood had assured Tunda that he would help him in future terrorist activities in India. After 6-7 months, Tunda had again met Dawood Ibrahim who had provided money to Tunda to preach `jihad` in madrassas in Pakistan," it said.
It also said that Tunda had met banned terror group IM`s founder member Amir Reza Khan in Karachi in 2005 and Khan had assured that he would help him in terror activities in India.
