ISI and its other arm LeT helped Dawood in his revolution from a smuggler in Mumbai to a terrorist. ISI-Dawood link has annoyed India since 1993 Mumbai bomb blast. Now, Dawood started haunting US and other countries which are in the mission against jihadis.
Times of India quoted an official as saying, "In the past he was looked upon mainly as a mercenary. LeT was more ideology driven but Dawood and his gang now seem to have merged into LeT."
Dawood, whose name tops the "most wanted terrorists" list handed over to Pakistan by India, lives in a bungalow in Karachi's Cliffton Road area. Though, Pakistan continues to deny Dawood's presence in the country.
However, Indian intelligence agencies with the help of Interpol have collected enough evidence to expose that Pakistani government is giving full support and shelter to Dawood Ibrahim.
Recently, a close source to Dawood's family informed that the underworld don decided to postpone his son Moin's marriage reception, though "the nikah will take place as per the schedule on May 27, a Friday."
The source said, "The wedding reception was to be held on May 28. However, due to the ongoing difficulties, Dawood has postponed the reception and a new date has not been fixed yet."
"Dawood wanted to throw a big party for Moin's wedding since it would be the last wedding of his children. But due to the changing scenario, he is taking precaution," added the source.
Dawood's jittery might have been intensed when his brother and aides were attacked by some unidentified goons in Mumbai recently.
Now, when Dawood has become a global terrorist, it will be interesting to see whether US will join India in its "kill Dawood" operation or not!
