    Dawood Ibrahim Critical in Karachi After Heart Attack: Reports

    New Delhi: One of the world’s most wanted men and fugitive Mumbai underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is in critical condition in Karachi after he suffered a heart attack, sources told CNN-News18.

    However, his top lieutenant Chota Shakeel told CNN-News18 over phone -- another fugitive from Indian law, he too is believed to be in Karachi -- that Ibrahim was perfectly fine and sought to dismiss all rumours.

    According to Indian intelligence sources, Dawood's movement was last reported on April 19 when he attended a dinner party at his son-in-law's residence in Karachi.

    CNN-News18 had reported last year that Dawood has crippling gangrene in his legs and was receiving treatment at his posh residence in the upscale Clifton neighbourhood of Karachi, sources said.


    Sixty one-year-old Dawood is wanted in India for organising and financing the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts that left 257 dead and 717 injured. The blasts were carried out with the help of his subordinates, Tiger Memon and Yakub Memon. In July 2015, Yakub Memon was hanged to death for this crime, while Dawood and Tiger are still free.

    Indian intelligence sources believe news about Dawood’s latest medical condition is being kept a secret by Pakistan, which has always denied that he lives in that country. They believe there would be no official announcement in case he dies because it would be difficult for Pakistan to admit his presence in Karachi.

    Dawood fled to Dubai in the 1980s after the Mumbai Police crackdown on the underworld, and left for Pakistan under the protection of the country’s intelligence agency ISI.

    Dawood's presence in Pakistan is the world's most open secret. A few journalists have claimed to have met the underworld don, but none have ever written about those meetings.

    The last exhaustive account of Dawood's life in Pakistan appeared in a Karachi-based magazine Newsline in the year 2001. The reporter Ghulam Hasnain was reportedly harassed by the ISI and the Pakistani Army over the article, which busted Islamabad's links with Dawood. The magazine's website doesn't have a link to that story now.

    If Hasnain's account is to be believed, Dawood, then a 46-year-old, led a very colourful life. Hasnain wrote that Dawood lived like a king in a palatial house spread over 6,000 square yards, with swimming pool, tennis courts, snooker room and a high-tech gym. He wore designer clothes, owned top of the line Mercedes cars and four-wheel drives.

    Having fled India, Dawood established his own underworld in Karachi, and expanded the D-company's global empire. He ran a multimillion dollar betting and match-fixing racket in cricket. Pakistan's most powerful including political leaders and top cricketers queued up to be feted by him.

    The legends are many and at one point he was said to have bailed out the Pakistan Central Bank.

    Pakistan not only gave Dawood shelter, but also a conducive hunting ground for his criminal network. Pakistani hitmen hired by Dawood, Hasnain's article said, attempted to kill his earlier No. 2 Chhota Rajan at his flat in Bangkok.

    The hitmen went with a birthday cake to wish Rajan on his birthday, but managed to kill only his aide and wife. The shooting was later depicted in detail in a Bollywood film 'Company' believed to be based on the lives of Dawood and Rajan.

    Bitter rivals today, Dawood and Rajan built the D-company toppling the don of Bombay underworld and their mentor Haji Mastan. Together, they rewrote the rules of the underworld, not hesitating to kill their rivals without a blink.

    Son of a police inspector, Dawood, built a network of informants in Mumbai Police, which allegedly works to his advantage even today.

    They don't even have facilities to do a simple kidney transplant,that is why the patients from Pakistan who are rich go to USA ,UK or come to India to get operated.
    In such situation ,lack of advanced medical facilities,infrastructure,personnel,these people attempted brain surgery? that outcome of such surgery is bound to fail and result will always be a failure.
    This also tells me how paranoid and scared Dawood was because Modi has set traps for him all over the world,if he is seen out of Pakistan,he would be eliminated or captured,that is why he chose to get operated in Pakistan instead of going to countries like USA,UK which have advanced medical care.

    Considering Pakistani heal care facilities , why does he not come to India for treatment ,?
    We provide world class treatment at affordable price.

    Jokes aside , i am sure the pig will die a pathetic death in his dirty sty and Pakistan will keep denying that.

    The worst part of this is that he is dying a natural death.

    He was a RAW operative before Chhota Rajan. ISI pursue him for bomb blast by provoking him in while Babri mosque
    He wanted to come back but he feared death penalty. He contacted Jethmalani and many politicians and nothing worked out. He was ready for jail. He has said that when he dies, he should be buried in India.

    It is possible that, all those news are crooked by Dawood itself. May be he now feeling heat and pressure due to pressure on Pakistani govt. by U.S forcing the Pakistani to act upon the terrorists, causing the Hafiz sayeed house arrest at present.
