UN panel lists 3 Dawood Ibrahim addresses in Pakistan
A UN committee has confirmed three addresses listed by Indian agencies as premises used by underworld don Dawood Ibrahim — all of them in Karachi in Pakistan, with one even in a Defence colony.
The addresses are a part of the dossier that India had furnished to both the UN and Islamabad. Three other addresses, also purportedly provided by India, find a mention in the amended list, but have been struck down.
Islamabad has all along denied Dawood’s presence in Pakistan. Under other information, the powerful UN organ said his father’s name is Sheikh Ibrahim Ali Kaskar, mother’s name is Amina Bi and wife’s name is Mehjabeen Shaikh.
“International arrest warrant issued by the Government of India,” it said. The aliases and the addresses are part of what the UN says is one single amendment that has been carried out in its sanctions list, pertaining to the Islamic State (IS) and Al Qaeda.
The three Karachi addresses of Dawood listed are: White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton; House No 37 – 30th Street – defence, Housing Authority; and Palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad.
Among the aliases used by Dawood that are listed are Abdul Hamid Abdul Aziz, Anis Ibrahim, Aziz Dilip and Shaikh Mohd Ismail Abdul Rehman.
The Indian dossier was listed by the UN Security Council on November 3, 2003. It has been amended six times since then, the latest being on Monday.
