The Modi government on Saturday asserted that Pakistan must hand over mafia don Dawood Ibrahim and terror operative Sayeed Salahudeen along with other terrorists who are Indian citizens and residing in the neighboring country, as per media reports.

They said Pakistan had failed to take any credible action against Jaish-e-Mohammed and other terror groups even after the dastardly Pulwama attack and also claimed that India had shared various key details such as coordinates of terror groups operating from Pakistan soil to Islamabad which could be verified by a third country.

The tension between the two nuclear-armed neighbors escalated after the February 14 Pulwama terror attack and a subsequent aerial strike by India on a training camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in Balakot on February 26.

Changing boards, putting people under detention is all cosmetic, sources said, referring to the recent “crackdown” by Islamabad against terror groups.

More than 10 countries had supported India's bid to designate JeM Chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist in the United Nations Security Council 1267 list, as co-sponsors.

The proposal was moved by France, UK, and the US on February 27. Germany became a co-sponsor to the proposal later on Wednesday.
