Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s location is not known to the government and once he is located, his extradition process will be initiated, Lok Sabha was informed on Tuesday.

“The United Nations Security Council has also issued a special notice against him. The subject has not been located so far. Extradition process with regard to Dawood Ibrahim would be initiated once the subject is located,” he said in reply to a written question.

The government has been maintaining for a long time that Dawood Ibrahim is living in Pakistan with the patronage of Pakistani security establishment.

India had handed over to Pakistan several dossiers on Dawood, India’s most wanted fugitive, giving details about his locations in Pakistan.

On December 27, 2014, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said in Lucknow that Dawood is India’s most wanted terrorist and India has repeatedly asked Pakistan to hand him over to it.

On the same day, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju had said in New Delhi that India asked Pakistan to hand over Dawood as enough evidence had been given to it on the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.

“We have been asking to hand over him to India for a long time. Already many evidence has been given to Pakistan. Pakistan should now act and hand him over to us,” Rijiju had said.

Chaudhary said today that India has made requests in respect of fugitive wanted by Indian authorities in terror cases namely Willy Naruenartwanch to Thailand, Usman Ghani Khan to Saudi Arabia, Abdul Wahid Siddibapa to the UAE, Velu alias Boopalan to the UK and Mohammad Hanif Tiger to the UK for expeditious extradition of these fugitives

    It is in the interest of Ruing Party at centre that Dawood Ibrahim remains where he wants whether it is stan or Abudabi.It will be very difficult for Modi Govt if he brought to India to carry his trial which may even take five general Elections(25 Years) to decide final verdict of SC. As usual his arrest can be highlighted during Lok Sabha Election till then Govt will promise to public that it is trying everything to bring him to India and then matter is finished for time being.Further his arrest will be liabilities to Govt to feed him in special for next 25 years.

      The Question is whether under world Dawood Ibrahim is arrested in 1993 OR not? He was in Vadodara Jail or not? Whether he got Bail in Vadodara OR Not? who was his Lawyer in Vadodara? What was the amount of his bail? Who paid his bail amount as he never returned? What the record of Vadodara jail speak of 1993? He was prisoner in Vadodara Jail for some time Or not? From which city he absconded?
