Dawood lives in Pakistan: Chidambaram
The Home Minister added that Pakistan had also denied that Osama Bin Laden was in Pakistan.

New Delhi: Asserting that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is living in Karachi, India on Monday said Pakistan must own up to terrorists and fugitives like him and others who are in their soil.

"I think we must continue to mobilise international opinion against all the terrorist and those who have fled the law and those who are sheltering in Pakistan, both terrorist and fugitives. Pakistan must own up to them...own up who is in Pakistan soil," Home Minister P Chidambaram said.

"We have often asked Pakistan to extradite or transfer Dawood to us. I think we know that Dawood Ibrahim lives in a house in Karachi. I think the broad coordinates of the location are also known. But the Pakistan flatly denies that

Dawood Ibrahim is in Pakistan," he said.

In the same vein, the Home Minister added that Pakistan had also denied that Osama Bin Laden was in Pakistan.

"So I dont know what value can be attached to their denial that Dawood Ibrahim is not in Pakistan," he told Times Now in an interview.

Chidambaram, however, said that as days go by, international pressure will mount on Pakistan to admit who Pakistan is sheltering "wittingly or unwittingly" on their soil.

He said the India's stand on the accused on 26/11 attack was corroborated by filing of the second chargesheet by the US Government in the same case in an American court.

"We have asked voice samples of some of them. We have included some of the names in the list of persons that I have asked my (Pakistani) counterpart to apprehend and interrogate. So the fact the common names in the list that I exchanged with him (Pakistani interior Minister Rehman Malik), the list that has to be arrested and the list whose voice samples we require, many of those names are among the five who have been indited by the US government," he said.

The accused identified as 'Major Iqbal', was named along with Sajid Mir, Mazhar Iqbal and Abu Qahafa in a second superseding indictment filed by the federal prosecutors before a court in Chicago on April 25 last.

Besides, the indictment mentioned an unnamed individual as "Lashkar Member D".
