Dawood struggles for life at hospital, IB keeps a watch
A day after news regarding Dawood Ibrahim's failing health broke out, Intelligence agencies are keeping a close watch on the developments. An IB official confirmed that he is in very bad condition and is admitted at the Aga Khan hospital in Karachi.
It is not looking good for Dawood and he is unlikely to survive an officer monitoring the situation said. He suffered a major heart attack and was shifted to hospital on Friday. Officials also rubbished reports that he was seen last at a function hosted by Javed Miandad. He has crippling gangrene and has not stepped out of his house for a long time.
There is major security outside the hospital and there is ample confirmation that he is being treated out there, officials also said. More proof about his failing health came up when his brother Anees took over the operations of the D-syndicate.
When asked about Chhota Shakeel's byte to the media that Dawood was hale and hearty, the official said the information was incorrect. Why would Shakeel confirm the news and also suggest that he is in Pakistan. Pakistan has long been in denial about the presence of Dawood on their soil and they would not allow anyone to confirm the same.
Moreover, by confirming the news, there could be a succession battle within the D-syndicate. It would be the ISI which would decide on who would succeed Dawood and it will not be the call of the gang members.
