Dawood, hospitalized at Karachi

Vastavam web:One of the world’s most wanted under world Don Dawood Ibrahim is in critical condition in Karachi after he suffered a heart attack.

However, his top lieutenant Chota Shakeel told to a news agency over phone and another fugitive from Indian law, he too is believed to be in Karachi — that Ibrahim was perfectly fine and sought to dismiss all rumors. According to Indian intelligence sources, Dawood’s movement was last reported on April 19 when he attended a dinner party at his son-in-law’s residence in Karachi

A news channel. reported last year that Dawood has crippling gangrene in his legs and was receiving treatment at his posh residence in the upscale Clifton neighbourhood of Karachi, sources said. Sixty one-year-old Dawood is wanted in India for organising and financing the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. The blasts were carried out with the help of his subordinates, Tiger Memon and Yakub Memon. In July 2015, Yakub Memon was hanged to death for this crime, while Dawood and Tiger are still free. Indian intelligence sources believe news about Dawood’s latest medical condition is being kept a secret by Pakistan, which has always denied that he lives in that country. They believe there would be no official announcement in case he dies because it would be difficult for Pakistan to admit his presence in Karachi.
