He fled the country post the bombings and is understood to be hiding in Pakistan.A fortnight ago, former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf hinted that fugitive underworld don is in Karachi.”India has been accusing Pakistan for long. Why should we now become good and assist them? I don’t know where Dawood is. He must be here, somewhere. India has been killing Muslims and Dawood Ibrahim has been reacting,” said Musharraf in an interview with a Pakistani news channel, giving a clear indication that the wanted criminal might be putting up in Pakistan.
