India, US working on choking support to Dawood Ibrahim's D-Company

Dawood's D-Company on US-India’s target
New Delhi, Oct 5: Following their agreement to dismantle safe havens for terrorists and criminal networks, India and the US are now working on how to choke all financial and tactical support to underworld don and terror mastermind Dawood Ibrahim's D-Company.

The D-company is a reference often used to describe India's most wanted criminal's widespread network of illegal activities.

A joint statement, issued after the talks between Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama said, "The leaders stressed the need for joint and concerted efforts, including the dismantling of safe havens for terrorist and criminal networks, to disrupt all financial and tactical support for networks such as al Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, the D-company, and the Haqqanis."

From Prime Minister Narendra Modi's delegation, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, stayed back in the US to discuss a strategy to be adopted with his American counterpart to implement the Indo-US commitment.

"They reiterated their call for Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the November 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai to justice."

Doval was also expected to have raised the issue of India's opposition US government- approved snooping on India.

Dawood, who is currently a fugitive, is accused of playing a major role in several terror strikes in India including the 1993 Mumbai blasts.
