New Delhi, Sept.2 (ANI): Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Monday expressed confidence about the country's law enforcement agencies nabbing underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and all other criminals who had taken refuge abroad.
"We will bring one by one. All will come. Just wait," Shinde told reporters here when asked whether there was any chance to arrest Dawood and bring him back to India.
Security agencies have been successful in bringing back several wanted terrorists, including Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal, key plotter of Mumbai attack terrorists Fasih Mahmood aka Fasih Mohammed, Abdul Karim Tunda and Yasin Bhatkal since Shinde was made the home minister on July 31 last year.
Jundal, a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative, accused of carrying out blasts in Ahmedabad railway station, the Aurangabad arms haul case and a co-accused in German bakery blast, was deported from Saudi Arabia in June 2012.
Fasih Mahmood, an LeT operative from Bihar, was allegedly involved in the 2010 Chinnaswamy Stadium blast in Bangalore and a terror attack near Jama Masjid in 2010. He was arrested in Saudi Arabia and subsequently brought back to India.
Tunda was accused of carrying out blasts in New Delhi, Panipat, Sonepat, Ludhiana, Kanpur and Varanasi between December 1996 and January 1998. He was arrested along the India-Nepal border last month.
Indian Mujahideen (IM) co-founder Yasin Bhatkal alias Syed Mohammed Ahmed Zarar Siddibapa, wanted in around 40 blast cases and carrying a reward of Rs 35 lakh, was arrested from India-Nepal border on Thursday. (ANI with inputs)
