London: Tiger Hanif, a close aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and wanted in India in connection with two bomb attacks in Gujarat in 1993, has lost his appeal in a UK High Court against extradition to India.
Reports on Friday said that Hanif alias Mohammed Hanif Umerji Patel, 51, was traced to a grocery store in Bolton, Greater Manchester in March 2010.

He is believed to be a close associate of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

Metropolitan Police arrested Hanif in February 2010 on an extradition warrant that alleged conspiracy to murder and conspiracy to cause explosions.

Hanif is wanted in India for his alleged role in a grenade attack on a packed market place which killed an 8-year-old schoolgirl in Surat in 1993.

He is also accused of plotting to carry out a second grenade attack at a crowded railway station which seriously wounded 12 commuters.

Hanif has since been contesting extradition on the ground that he would be tortured by Indian officials, and that confessions of others involved with the bombings had been allegedly gained through torture interrogations.
