The Times of India, in a report has stated that Indian agencies have got specific input about the sense of paranoia that has taken over these people. They are all now under the collective fear of another similar operation as the one that led to the killing of Laden.
There are a plethora of reasons that can be attributed for the fear. First and foremost, is the possibility of US expanding its horizon for the war against terror, which would inevitably encompass them as well.
The second reason is the fear of India carrying out similar operations to gun down its most wanted terrorist.
And finally, they are unsure of Pakistan's ability to further safeguard them, given the way US killed Laden right under the nose of country's military. Then again, they are not too sure if Pakistan would risk it's image and wouldn't hand them over to India or any other country.
Dawood's brother Anis Ibrahim and close aide Chhota Shakeel, the Memon brothers, Tiger and Ayub are some of the top Indian fugitves hiding in Pakistan. Among others are Khalistan terrorists Lakhbir Singh, Paramjit Singh Panjwar, Ranjit Singh, Wadhawa Singh and Kashmiri militants such as Amanullah Khan, and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin.
It can be recalled that India, has since long been asking Pakistan to arrest Dawood and extradite him for the various crimes he has done in Mumbai and other Indian cities. Pakistan has all along been maintaining, that it doesn't know about Dawood's wherabouts, whereas, its an open secret that the gangster leaves in Karachi's Clifton area and his daughter has been married to former Pakistani skipper Javed Miandad's son.
