Proof of Dawood's Pak links given to Interpol
"We have given complete proof of his entire network in Pak to Interpol and they believes us," CBI director said.india Updated: Jul 07, 2006 16:58 IST
The CBI on Friday said that it had supplied all addresses of global terrorist Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan to Interpol.
"We have given complete proof about his entire network in Pakistan to Interpol and they believes us," CBI Director Vijay Shanker said after his 30-minute meeting with Home Minister Shivraj Patil.
The comments from the CBI director comes close on the heels of Pakistan approaching the France-based world police body and claiming that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was not hiding in its territory.
Pakistan had also asked Interpol to strike out Karachi as his address in a Interpol-United Nations notice issued for Dawood, who has been designated as global terrorist by the US State Department.
The Interpol headquarters in France sought a reply from the CBI, which informed that the presence of Ibrahim in Pakistan had been confirmed, and this fact had also been acknowledged by the US Department of State that has named the don a 'Specially Designated Global Terrorist' (SDGT).
This is the first time that Islamabad has objected to any international body for stating that Ibrahim, wanted by the CBI in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, lives in Pakistan, though it has been constantly maintaining this stand in bilateral talks with New Delhi.
About filing of second chargesheet in the navy war room leak case, Shanker said "we will go as per the law" and refused to elaborate further.
