India will bring Dawood Ibrahim back: Rajnath
New Delhi: India will do everything possible to bring back underworld don Dawood Ibrahim from Pakistan, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday.
Pakistan was under international obligation to find him as Interpol has already issued a Red Corner notice against him, said Singh in the Lok Sabha.
Pakistan has been asked time and again by India to look out for him but it has failed to do so. “We will bring him back,” he said.
“Whether we have to pursue Pakistan or pressurise it, we will not rest till Dawood Ibrahim is brought back,” he said, adding that India has maintained pressure on Pakistan at all levels over the issue.
Singh’s assertion came after opposition attack over the home ministry’s reply to a question in the Lok Sabha last week that it was not aware of Dawood’s location.
“India has credible information about his presence in Pakistan… Despite overwhelming documentary and other evidence handed over to Pakistan, Pakistan has failed to locate Dawood Ibrahim and initiate legal process,” he said.
Rajnath Singh said that Pakistan was bound by international obligations to locate and extradite him.
