The UK government has confirmed three addresses of D-company boss and fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim in a list that it released on Thursday. All the three properties listed are in Karachi, Pakistan.
Here are the details of the three bungalows mentioned in the list:
The fugitive don's place of birth is recorded as Kher, Ratnagiri, Maharashtra, and his nationality is listed as 'Indian' with a recorded Indian passport which was subsequently revoked by the government of India.. His Father's name is mentioned as Sheikh Ibrahim Ali Kaskar, Mother's name as Amina Bi, Wife as Mehjabeen Shaikh. He is also referred to as Hizrat and Mucchad.
Republic TV had also exclusively accessed visuals of what was believed to be the current residence of D-company boss and fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim. Dawood was said to live at D-13, Clifton Block 4, Karachi. Republic TV had received confirmation of the same from sources in Karachi. Dawood's presence is said to be an open secret in Pakistan's biggest city. The house has been given multiple layers of security, all of which had to be bypassed to obtain the visuals.
This development cames two days after Republic TV learnt that Dawood Ibrahim is willing to return to India. Speaking to Republic TV, Dawood's brother Iqbal Kaskar's lawyer had said, "He is prepared to come down to Mumbai and if they still have some case against him, he is prepared to face the charges but he must be kept only in Arthur Road jail."
Earlier, former ACP of Mumbai Crime branch Suresh Walishetty exposed the Dawood and Congress Connection during an exclusive interview with Republic TV. He revealed that after the JJ Hospital shootout in 1992, Dawood's gang member took shelter at an NTPC guest house situated in Mumbai's Pali Hill area.
He further said that this guest house was booked for Dawood's aide by the then Union Minister of State, Power and Non- Conventional Energy Sources (Independent Charge) Kalpanath Rai's personal assistant Prakash Rai.
