India has reiterated that Pakistan must heed international opinion and extradite Dawood Ibrahim, whom they have provided sanctuary for long, to face justice for his many crimes.

Citing the confirmation by United Nations about six of the nine addresses of Dawood provided by India, external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swaroop said on Friday India has always maintained that Pakistan is harbouring the “global terrorist”.

“India continues to maintain that it is incumbent upon Pakistan to extradite this global terrorist to whom they have provided sanctuary for a very long period of time to face justice for his many crimes. We hope Pakistan will heed international opinion on this issue,” he said.

Recently, a monitoring team of the United Nations’ 1267 Committee, which periodically updates the record of the global terrorists on its database, confirmed six of the nine addresses of Dawood provided by India.

“What this signifies is that Dawood Ibrahim continues to remain on the designated list as a global terrorist and the 1267 monitoring committee continues to retain his Pakistani passport as a valid document. The UN has also confirmed that he resides in and has properties in Pakistan and the UN continues to keep a regular watch on him,” Swaroop said.

He said that as a result of this exercise by the 1267 monitoring committee, apart from the confirmation of his addresses, some other records pertaining to Dawood have also been added, such as his wife’s name, father’s name and several of his aliases.

“He has been travelling under various aliases,” he said.
