Some secret location in Pakistan: Dawood Ibrahim has been away for so long, that we think of him as nothing but a Pakistani smuggler helping terror groups wage a war on India. But he was born in India in 1955, and till 1986, was as much Indian as the rest of us.
He was very much a part of the Mumbai underworld that we Indians admire so much, and which Bollywood glorifies frequently. He was also admired and respected by those in the police force and used as a tool to settle scores.
Dawood had great political links. In fact, when he fled to Dubai in 1986, it was due to a tip-off from a senior politician in the Mantralaya (the Maharashtra state government headquarters). But finally the defense minister has made some serious plans to catch this notorious criminal.
According to Parrikar, he is in touch with the Pokemon’s creator company, to design a Pokemon named Dawood, so that general public will try to catch it, and it will make the task of the government a lot easier. Our soldiers will be given smartphones to play this game, and catch him red-handed in Pakistan.
He wants the surroundings to be designed just like the Bungalow where Dawood resides in Pakistan. All secret agencies will have to install the Pokemon game in their phone and the application will show where Dawood is.
Whether Dawood gets got through this latest trick by Indian government, is yet to be seen.
