New Delhi, Jan 13: Indian officials say that they have no
confirmation that Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharrif hosted
India's most wanted, Dawood
When asked for a reaction to reports suggesting that Sharrif had hosted, Dawood, an official informed OneIndia that the information is not correct and there is nothing to suggest an incident of this nature.
There could have been a mix up in the information and the Intelligence Bureau (IB) has not picked up any intercept or has any information suggesting that Dawood had been hosted by the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Moreover, Pakistan which is in denial about the existence of Dawood on its soil will not take such a huge risk and the ISI will not permit him to be seen in functions of such a grand scale especially when they are aware that India and the interpol is tracking him.
Earlier media reports quoted Mumbai-based senior journalist Baljeet Parmar as saying that Dawood had attended Sharif's granddaughter Meherun Nisa's wedding just a day after Modi's surprise visit to his Pakistani counterpart's ancestral home in Lahore.
Modi's decision of visiting Pakistan was hailed by everyone across the world. It was believed that India and Pakistan may sort out its differences if the countries continue to follow the steps shown by Modi-Sharif.
However, if the reports about Sharif hosting Dawood is proved to be true then it would be difficult for both countries to continue the possible peace talks.
