New Delhi, Aug. 24 (ANI): Advocating the United Nations and the United States to stop 'double standards' on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, the Janata Dal (United) on Wednesday asked them to impose pressure on Pakistan for its complicity in global terrorism.

The Janata Dal (United) on Wednesday called on the United Nations and the United States to stop 'double standards' on underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

Rubbishing the UN's update of its dossier on Dawood, JD (U) leader Pawan Verma told ANI that the certificate of the organisation is of no use.

"It's nice that the United Nations has confirmed what we already knew. What is the United Nations certificate of use? We have provided incontrovertible evidence of Dawood's residence in Pakistan and the shelter provided to him by the Pakistan Government, ISI and the Army. I must say it takes a long time for the UN to understand what is self-evident," Verma said.

"Sometimes I feel along with the UN, the United States also has exceptionally double standards when dealing with terrorism. If you are useful to me, I will close my eyes to what you do to support global terrorism. It's the most short-sighted policy," he added.

The United Nations has removed three of the nine places cited by India as the addresses of Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan after a committee found them to be incorrect.

The Security Council Committee pursuant to Resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) enacted the amendments specified with underline and strike through in the entry" concerning Dawood on its ISIL (Da'esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo on August 22.

India in an evidence to show that Dawood is holed up in Pakistan had in a dossier listed nine residences of the underworld don, stating that he is known to frequently change his locations and addresses in Pakistan. (ANI)
