Dawood Ibrahim continues to have a grip over the security agencies in Pakistan and is still a force to reckon with, an Indian Intelligence Bureau report states.
A few months back there were certain health related issues, but today he is in the pink of health, the IB states. He oversees both the drug trade between Afghanistan and India and also the extortion racket in Mumbai which is a huge money spinner the IB officer also said.
Pakistan's ISI continues to frequently move his location as there is a threat to his life. He has been moved around at least 4 to five times in the past three months as per the intercepts that the IB has picked up.
Meanwhile on the other hand, India has got an assurance from the UAE that it would let its soil be used for the don's activities. India has been in touch with the UAE over this issue.
With the don finding a safe hideout in Pakistan and an extradition from there out of the question, the agencies have decided to target his financial interests. A pattern has been set when the agencies have been told to specifically target his financial interests. A Dawood without money is like dead-wood and Pakistan would be the first to drop him like a hot potato, an officer informed.
