New Delhi: Recent intelligence reports suggest that India's most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim is back to his safe haven in Karachi in Pakistan after country's spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) decided to shift him from the Af-Pak border due to security concerns.
Intelligence inputs indicate that Dawood, main accused in 1993 Mumbai blasts, returned to Karachi after Pakistani Army launched massive offensive against Tehrik-e-Taliban (TTP) militants.
Earlier, there were reports that Dawood was hiding at Af-Pak border.
These reports had also suggested that Dawood was keen on visiting Saudi Arabia with his family. He had demanded a chartered plane from Pakistani authorities for the same but his request was denied citing increasing co-operation between India and Saudi Arabia.
India had in the past provided the exact address of Dawood to the Pakistani authorities. Records claim that Dawood has been provided two houses -- White House near Saudi Mosqu, Clifton in Karachi and 37, 3rd Street, Defence Housing Society in Karachi –by the ISI.
In November last year, India's Home Minister Rajnath Singh had accused Pakistan of providing shelter to Dawood and claimed that he is staying along the Af-Pak border.
