United states had recently discovered Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence's (ISI) connection with many terror groups including Haqqani network. Chidambaram said that he was not surprised with United States' current information on ISI.
Dawood Ibrahim had hosted a grand marriage of his son Moin at his mansion, White House in Karachi. Chidambaram said that he was aware of it and had raised the issue with the current Interior Minister of Pakistan, Rehman Mallik.
Chidambaram was quoted as saying, “We know where Dawood lives. We have raised it with Pakistan... they deny he lives there. What is it we can do? Some day that will also be exposed. I have raised it with my counterpart."
