Indian media claims that Dawood IBrahim resides in Karachi, who is alleged to be the mastermind of 1993 Bombay Bombings that claimed over 250 fatalities and 700 injuries.
India Today reports:
“Even as Sanjay Dutt gets five years in jail in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, the mastermind behind the attack, Dawood Ibrahim, is leading a lavish life in Pakistan”
Sources cite all whereabouts of the Dawood, at the same time accused Pakistani government to have sheltered the most wanted underworld man.
“Based on the dossier of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) on Dawood, Aaj Tak has tracked the new den of India’s most-wanted don to Karachi. The house – 6-A, Khayaban Tanzeem – is located in Defence Housing Area (DHA), Phase V, one of the most upscale colonies in the city.
The same address has been given to Islamabad by Interpol to locate and apprehend the underworld don. However, from former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf to present interior minister Rehman Malik, the government there has always been in denial of the presence of Dawood on its soil.
According to the CBI, Dawood was earlier residing with his family at Moin Palace, Clifton, Karachi. After 9/11 attack, when Dawood was declared a global terrorist by the United States, the underworld don shifted his base to North West Frontier Province in Pakistan and later relocated to DHA, Karachi. The latest pictures of Dawood’s bungalow reveal that the don enjoys state security and boasts of a fleet of luxurious cars, including a black Toyota Land Cruiser. The sprawling bungalow has several diplomats, former governors and politicians living in the neighbourhood.
At present, Dawood, his wife Mahzabeen and their son live in the bungalow. His elder daughter and her husband, brother Anees Ibrahim and close aide Chhota Shakeel also live in the neighbourhood. Speaking to Indian media, noted lawyer Majid Memon said: “It’s surprising how a journalist can discover Dawood’s den (in Karachi) while the IB and RAW have failed to locate India’s most-wanted fugitive.”
It should be noted that this exclusive Indian media report come to the forefront a day after Sunjay Dutt was given a 5 year sentence for possessing arms with Dawood’s assistance
