UN strikes out three of nine Dawood’s addresses in Pak as incorrect

New York, Aug. 23 : The United Nations has removed three of the nine places cited by India as the addresses of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan after a committee found it to be incorrect.

The Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) enacted the amendments specified with underline and strikethrough in the entry" concerning Dawood on its ISIL (Da'esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo on August 22.

The Committee in an amendment has stricken through the address "Main Property at Margalla Raod F- 6/2 Street no.22, House No.07, Islamabad number 29 in Karachi which was found to be similar to that of a residence belonging to Lodhi." It also strikes out "8th Floor of Mehran Square, near Pardesi House-3, Talwar Area, Clifton, Karachi, Pakistan" and "6/A Kjauabam Tanzeem, Phase-5, Defence Housing Area, Karachi, Pakistan." India in an evidence to show that Dawood is holed up in Pakistan had in a dossier listed nine residences of the underworld don, stating that he is known to frequently change his locations and addresses in Pakistan.

The other addresses of Dawood mentioned in the listing "Karachi, Pakistan (White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton)", "House Nu 37 - 30th Street - defence, Housing Authority, Karachi, Pakistan" and "Palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad in Karachi" have not been amended.

These addresses were also included in a dossier prepared by India in August last year. "Dawood is known to frequently change his locations and addresses in Pakistan. He has amassed immense property in Pakistan and moves under the protection of Pakistani agencies," the dossier had said.

Islamabad has consistently denied that Dawood is living in the country. The information about the underworld don's residences in Pakistan, including one bought near the house of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of late former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto, in Karachi two years ago is present in the dossier.

The dossier prepared was to be handed over to Pakistan's National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz during talks with his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval, which were later cancelled.

The committee has also amended the details of his family. The information "Father's name is Sheikh Ibrahim Ali Kaskar, mother's name is Amina Bi, wife's name is Mehjabeen Shaikh" has been underlined in the listing.

A UN designated terrorist, Dawood, was listed on November 3, 2003, and the entry has been amended in March and July 2006, July 2007 and March 2010.

The amendment also struck out "Bombai" as his place of birth, and noted it is "Kher, Ratnagiri in Maharashtra".

The amendment added Sheikh Farooqi, Bada Seth, Bada Bhai, Iqbal Bhai, Mucchad and Haji Sahab as his "low quality" aliases.

The listing also includes information about his various passports, including those issued in Pakistan.

According to listings, Dawood had a Passport number A717288 issued on August 18, 1985, in Dubai and a Pakistani number G866537 issued on August 12, 1991, in Rawalpindi but adds the term "misuse" for these two passports.

He also has Passport number C-267185 issued in Karachi in July1996, Passport number H-123259 issued in Rawalpindi in July 2001 and Passport number G-869537 issued in Rawalpindi.

Dawood is wanted in India for the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai which killed 257 people and injured nearly a thousand.

He also faces charges of other terror attacks besides money laundering and extortion cases..
