Pakistan must handover Dawood Ibrahim: Venkaiah Naidu

Hyderabad, Aug 22 : Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and Urban Development M.Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday asked Pakistan to hand over underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and those involved in the 26/11 Mumbai teror attack to India.

Naidu said it is an open secret that Pakistan has given shelter to Dawood and is supporting him.

He was reacting to a media report that 1993 Mumbai blasts mastermind Dawood AIbrahim lives in Pakistan.

He told reporters here on the sidelines of a national conclave on smart technologies that Pakistan must handover Dawood and others to India for a better relation between the two countries.

“Pakistan had always denied this. Today there is strong evidence before the whole world. Pakistan should realise and handover Dawood and other accused of 26/11 to India,” he said.

“What is the interest of Pakistan in providing shelter to Dawood?” he asked.
