The Indian government’s recent comment that it did not know the whereabouts of Dawood Ibrahim vindicates Pakistan’s stand that the fugitive criminal was not in its territory, Pakistani High Commissioner Abdul Basit said on Wednesday.
Basit said Islamabad views Kashmir as the “core issue” and all other issues, including terrorism, are sub-sets of it.
- Dawood Ibrahim named as co-accused in extortion case
- Dawood Ibrahim's wife Mehajabin did not come to India, police clarify
- Two corporators attended Iqbal Kaskar’s ‘daawat’: Mumbai Police
- Iqbal Kaskar arrest: Police to probe Dawood Ibrahim link in extortion racket
- Legal hurdles prevent seizure of Dawood Ibrahim's properties, says Police official
- Rajnath Singh likely to make statement on Dawood Ibrahim soon
In an interview to Headlines Today, he said that MoS for Home Haribhai Chaudhary’s statement in Parliament about Dawood on Tuesday had vindicated Islamabad’s stand that “he is not in Pakistan”.
He also said that India had never asked in writing for Dawood’s extradition.
