Former Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Saturday said India will have to put pressure on the global community as well as on Pakistan for securing fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim’s custody .

“We had given Dawood Ibrahim’s reported address in Pakistan and passport details to the Pakistan administration and International Police Organisation from time to time with a request to locate and hand him over to India,“ Shinde told TOI.

Shinde, who was home minister between August 1, 2012 and May 2014, said while a red corner notice was issued in 1993, the United Nations Security Council had also issued a special notice in 2006 against him.

During his visit to US, Shinde discussed the spurt in cross-border terrorism with FBI sleuths and their attorney-general. “All along, our emphasis was on tackling terrorism and nabbing the terrorist. In my opinion, Pakistan must cooperate with India,“ Shinde said. “Pakistan has r paid a heavy price for prol tecting terrorists,“ he said.

During his ministerial stint, Shinde was instrumental in expediting the execution of t Pakistani terrorist Ajmal “ Kasab and Parliament at tack convict Afzal Guru. After the apex court had upheld the death sentence for Kasab and Guru, they had filed mercy petitions before the President. Subsequently, Shinde had cleared the proposals when the Rashtrapati Bhavan had sought the home ministry’s opinion. Recently, there was a furore after minister of state Haribhai Chaudhary informed the Lok Sabha that “Dawood had not been located so far and that the extradition process with regard to him would be initiated once he is located“. Subse quently , on May 11 Union home minister Rajnath Singh amended Choudhary’s reply , saying that the don’s details, including his Pakistani passports and his addresses in Pakistan, have been provided to the authorities. Singh said that Pakistan is under obligation to locate a person in respect of whom a red corner notice has been issued to enable the requisitioning country to start extraditiondeportation proceedings. Dawood is wanted for masterminding the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.
