The ruling government, which has been isolated by the simultaneous criticism of Opposition parties, claimed that despite the latest goof-up, government will not recall the declared list.
Internal Affairs secretary UK Bansal said, "Error has been accepted. Responsibility will be fixed for the mistake. There is no possibility of recalling the list. MHA is reviewing the list."
Wazhul Kamar Khan and Feroz Abdul Rashid Khan's names were enlisted at number 41 and 24 in the "most wanted" terrorists list. Both of them have been found in Mumbai's jail.
Meanwhile, many people started questioning about the authenticity of the entire list and speculation began mulling on Dawood Ibrahim, the underworld don who has topped the list.
Earlier, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram stated, "We have often asked Pakistan to extradite or transfer Dawood to us. I think we know that Dawood Ibrahim lives in a house in Karachi. I think the broad coordinates of the location are also known. But the Pakistan flatly denies that Dawood Ibrahim is in Pakistan."
However, the recent blunder by the Indian government indeed created doubt about Dawood's presence in India. Recently, a deadly attack on Dawood's brother Iqbal Kaskar hints the presence of D-company in India.
