New Delhi: In an attempt by New Delhi to prove Dawood Ibrahim’s presence in Pakistan, India had sent a dossier listing nine residences of the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim. Of the nine places listed, the United Nations confirmed six places and found three of them incorrect as Dawood residences.
India also stated that Ibrahim is known to frequently change his locations and addresses in Pakistan.
A UN Committee has validated six of the nine properties listed by India and has confirmed of their presence in Pakistan.
According to reports, one of the addresses mentioned in the dossier was found to be incorrect by the UN Security Council’s Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee. The address was similar to the residence of Islamabad’s envoy to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi.
A top Indian official told PTI that one address of Dawood in the listing entry was incorrect. The address was “of Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi, and not Dawood Ibrahim”, the sources said.
Minister of State (MoS) Home Kiren Rijiju reacting on UN panel report confirming Dawood’s addresses in Pakistan said, “Indian Government already knew it.”
The amendment also strikes through other addresses, “8th Floor of Mehran Square, near Pardesi House-3, Talwar Area, Clifton, Karachi, Pakistan” and “6/A Kjauabam Tanzeem, Phase-5, Defence Housing Araea, Karachi, Pakistan.”
The addresses were included in a dossier prepared by India in August last year that had listed nine residences of the underworld don in Pakistan as evidence to show that he is indeed holed up in Pakistan.
Recently, Dawood Ibrahim was in the news because of the marriage of his nephew in Mumbai.
