United Nations, Aug 23:
Spelling out at least 14 latest aliases used by wanted underworld don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, the UN Security Council has listed three addresses under his name — all of them in Karachi in Pakistan, with one even in a defence colony.
Three of these addresses are a part of the dossier which India had furnished to both the UN and Islamabad. Three others, also purportedly provided by India, find a mention in the amended list, but have been struck down.
Islamabad has all along denied Dawood’s presence in Pakistan.
Under other information, the powerful UN organ said his father’s name is Sheikh Ibrahim Ali Kaskar, mother’s name is Amina Bi and wife’s name is Mehjabeen Shaikh.
“International arrest warrant issued by the Government of India,” it said.
The aliases and the addresses are part of what the UN says is one single amendment that has been carried out in its sanctions list, pertaining to the Islamic State (IS) and Al Qaeda.
The Committee’s IS and Al Qaeda Sanctions List is updated regularly on the basis of relevant information provided by member states and international and regional organisations, according to the Security Council press release.
The three Karachi addresses of Dawood listed are: White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton; House No 37 – 30th Street – defence, Housing Authority; and Palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad.
Among the aliases used by Dawood that are listed are Abdul Hamid Abdul Aziz, Anis Ibrahim, Aziz Dilip and Shaikh Mohd Ismail Abdul Rehman.
The Indian dossier was listed by the UN Security Council on November 3, 2003.
It has been amended six times since then, the latest being on Monday. (IANS)
