A day the Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi confirmed that fugitive underworld don and key accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, Dawood Ibrahim was in Pakistan, former President of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf, asserting that Dawood is in Pakistan said that why should they help India.
The former President said, "India has been accusing Pakistan for long. Why should we now become good and assist them? I don't know where Dawood, the key accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts is. He must be here, somewhere. India has been killing Muslims and Dawood Ibrahim has been reacting."
This comes as a first nod from Pakistan about Dawood residing there. Despite India's consistent efforts in this regards, Pakistan had so far denied the information. In the past 10 years, India has sent several dossiers to Pakistan seeking his arrest, telling that the underworld don was living in Karachi.
The Union Home Secretary had on Wednesday said that the government was taking all the required actions in order to bring Ibrahim back to India. He had said, "Dawood Ibrahim is in Pakistan. That country has given him shelter. That country is also putting hurdles in bringing him back to India to face the law."
“Whatever action is required, we are taking. We will get him. The process is on. But the attitude of the Pakistan government is not in conformity with the international law. Pakistan is working against India. The legal process is on. We will get him at an opportune time,” he had said.
Ibrahim is the main accused in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case in Mumbai in which around 260 people were killed, and more than 700 were injured. He had fled India post the bombings, going into hiding in Pakistan.
In April, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had stated there was no doubt that Ibrahim was still in Pakistan. During the last 10 years, India has sent several dossiers to Pakistan in this regard, naming Ibrahim as the accused in the Mumbai blasts case.
