The Indian government has proposed a joint action with the United States to arrest the fugitive gangster and country’s most wanted terrorist,Dawood Ibrahim,Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said.
“We have arrested some most wanted terrorists of late and have killed a few on the border. As far as Dawood Ibrahim is concerned,we are in touch with the FBI. There is already a red corner notice against Dawood Ibrahim. We have proposed a joint action with the US to arrest him. US Attorney General Eric Holder has also agreed to this,” Shinde told reporters.
Indian intelligence agencies have claimed for long that the gangster is living in Pakistan,although latest reports suggest he might have shifted base to UAE in April of this year.
He is wanted in India for his roles in 1993 Bombay bomb blasts and recent incidents of IPL spot-fixing. Due to his contacts with the al-Qaeda and his supposed close relationship with Osama bin Laden,America has branded him a ‘global terrorist’ and its intelligence agencies are involved in tracking him. He is also on Interpol’s list of wanted international criminals.
