UK court cleared the extradition of Dawood Ibrahim’s aide, Jabir Motiwala to the United States. For India, this decision comes as a shot in the arm, as the interrogation of Motiwala, will further expose Pakistan.
In a major decision earlier this week, a court in the United Kingdom cleared the extradition of Dawood Ibrahim’s aide, Jabir Motiwala to the United States.
This is an extremely significant decision considering the proximity Motiwala shares with Dawood Ibrahim. For India, this decision comes as a shot in the arm, as the interrogation of Motiwala, will further expose Pakistan and the protection it is granting to the underworld don and mastermind of the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.
New Delhi, Jan 10: A former member of both the Dawood Ibrahim and Chhota Rajan gang was nabbed by the Mumbai police. Ejaz Lakdawala, who has given the police the slip for several decades was arrested in Patna on Wednesday. There was a Red Corner Notice issued against him.
Ejaz shuttled between India and Nepal and was involved with the underworld. He was running a major extortion racket and would make calls to businessmen, builders and film personalities.
Talks with several officials in intelligence agencies has revealed that the efforts to nab or take out Dawood Ibrahim has been put off by orders stating that the operations was too risky or by a mysterious phone call. This prompts the question of who is responsible in India being unable to catch the elusive don/terrorist since 1994
At a rally in Akola, Maharashtra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said it would soon become clear, who helped the perpetrators of the 1993 Mumbai blasts get away.
After the blasts, the key accused in the blasts, Dawood Ibrahim, Tiger Memon and others managed to slip away and till date remain elusive. It may be re-called that the opposition in Maharashtra had accused the Sharad Pawar led government of being hand in glove with the underworld. The charge was however denied by Pawar.
New Delhi, Oct 02: A Thai court of appeal have overturned a lower court order which had okayed the extradition of Munna Jhingada, a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim.

New Delhi, Sep 05: The new terror law in India has taken shape and the government designated Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar, Lashkar-e-Tayiba boss, Hafiz Saeed, Dawood Ibrahim and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi as individual terrorists.

New Delhi, July 06:Pakistan has sought to mislead everyone yet again by claiming that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is not on their soil. The denial comes in the wake of India on several occasions providing ample proof about his existence in Pakistan.
