Home secretary GK Pillai on Tuesday took on Pakistan interior minister Rehman Malik for claiming that India's most wanted Dawood Ibrahim was not in Pakistan.

Pillai said, "If the minister (Rehman Malik) is so sure that Dawood is not in Pakistan, he should tell us where is he.... According to our information, Dawood is in Pakistan."

Pillai's claim is based on information provided by Indian intelligence agencies. According to security agencies, Dawood has lived at five addresses during his stay in Pakistan - three in Karachi and two in Islamabad. One address is an ISI safe house located on the Bhubhan Hill around 20 km from Islamabad.

Dawood and his family members have been issued many Pakistani passports.

According to sources, once a passport of Dawood or his family member comes under the Indian intelligence’s radar, they are given a new passport.
