Where is underworld don and 1993 Mumbai blasts mastermind Dawood Ibrahim? That's a question for which India had an answer for more than two decades, but neighbour Pakistan kept denying.
It was a major scoop for the Hindustan Times as the paper published a latest (2012) picture of Dawood Ibrahim and the don's telephone bill in the name of his wife for the month of April 2015. Later, news channel Times Now telecast an audio recording with a woman who picked up a call made by the channel's reporter to Karachi, and said 'Yes, he is sleeping', when asked 'Are you Dawood's wife?'
According to Hindustan Times, the telephone bill in the name of his wife Mahjabeen Shaikh had the uptown Clifton Area address. But Dawood Ibrahim has three Pakistani passports it seems, with two different addresses. Here is a look at where the don could be in Pakistan.
1. The address on the telephone bill is D-13, Block-4, Karachi Development Authority, Sch-5, Clifton, Karachi.
The uptown area in Saddar town of Karachi is right next to the Clfton beach. The area dotted with malls and schools also housed famous personalities like Benazir Bhutto. Many Consulate General offices too are located in the Clifton area.
2. One of the addresses on Dawood's passports is 6A, Khayaban Tanzeem, Phase 5, Defence Housing Area. This area too is close to the Clifton Beach.
3. The other address in his passport is Moin Palace, II floor, Near Abdullah Shah Ghazi Dargah, Clifton, Karachi. As seen on Google maps, the Dargah is close to the Police Training Academy. This too is in the Clifton neighborhood.
