Dawood's addresses: Cong asks UN to take cognizance, question Pak

New Delhi, Aug 23 (ANI): The Congress Party on Tuesday said the United Nations should now question Islamabad following its committee's report on the addresses of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan.

"If this is true then cognizance of the same should be taken. Only India cannot keep on questioning Pakistan in this regard, now the United Nations should also question Islamabad," said Congress leader Meem Afzal.

Three of nine addresses provided by India to the United Nations Sanctions Committee as addresses of Dawood in Pakistan have been found to be incorrect. A UN Committee has struck off three addresses from the list provided by India, while confirming the remaining six addresses in the dossier.

One of the addresses, which have been dropped by the UN Security Council's Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee, was found similar to that of a residence of Pakistan's envoy to the UN Maleeha Lodhi.

The addresses were included in a dossier prepared by India in August last year that had listed nine residences of the underworld don in Pakistan as evidence to show that he is indeed holed up in the country. (ANI)
