New Delhi, Aug 10: Delhi Police special cell claimed as late as April this year that telephonic intercepts of call made to and from Pakistan clearly show that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and his lieutenant Chhota Shakeel are still in Pakistan.
Eight mobile phone numbers given by RAW (Research and Analysis Wing), India's external spy agency to the Special Cell, were put on surveillance in early February this year, officials said.
On 1st June, Special Cell got a confirmation from RAW that some numbers were "interchangeably" used by Dawood and his aide Chhota Shakeel.
Delhi Police chargesheet in the IPL spotfixing case clearly says: "The instant ops had begun when the central intelligence agencies had shared some secret information which included certain international cell phone numbers with special cell.
"The secret info and numbers so received were considered as "suspect" by central intelligence agency on account of being linked to anti national/terrorist activities as derived from their own sources and analysis.
"These numbers were further analyzed. The primary number received as part of secret information was a Pakistani number +923332064488 (RAW CONFIRMED IT WAS USED BY DAWOOD & SHAKEEL).
" The scrutiny of this number revealed that this number was in touch with a Dubai number +971561363786 (USED BY HIS AIDE Dr JAVED).
"Both these numbers were intercepted. Dubai number was in touch with Tinku Mandi whose real name as Ashwani Agarwal.
"The intercepted calls left no doubt that Tinku Mandi was the main indian conduit on behalf of the overseas based underworld for orchestrating spot/session fixing in the ongoing IPL", the chargesheet said.
