Kiren Rijiju on Tuesday said that the government already knew that 3 of 9 addresses of Dawood in Pakistan were incorrect. UN panel, today, in a report confirmed 3 of 9 addresses of Dawood incorrect. One of the addresses which have been dropped by the UN Security Council’s Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee was found similar to that of a residence of Islamabad’s envoy to the UN Maleeha Lodhi. However, the six other addresses provided by India have not been amended. India, in a dossier, had cited these nine addresses as those frequented by Dawood. In evidence to show that Dawood Ibrahim is holed up in Pakistan, a dossier prepared by India had listed nine residences of the underworld don in that country and stated that he is known to frequently change his locations and addresses there.
In the amendment, the Committee has stricken through the address “Main Property at Margalla Raod F- 6/2 Street no.22, House No.07, Islamabad number 29 in Karachi. This address was later found to be similar to that of a residence belonging to Lodhi.” “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.” Dawood’s other addresses mentioned in the listing “Karachi, Pakistan (White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton)”, “House Nu 37 – 30th Street – defence, Housing Authority, Karachi, Pakistan” and “Palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad in Karachi” have not been amended. 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 holed up in Pakistan.
Islamabad has consistently denied that Dawood is living in the country. Dawood is wanted in India for the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai in which 257 people were killed and nearly a thousand injured. He is also accused of masterminding other terror attacks and of money laundering and extortion.
