'Joint action' with US proposed to nab Dawood: Shinde

September 09, 2013 18:32 IST

The Indian government has proposed a joint action with the United States to arrest the fugitive gangster and country's most wanted terrorist, Dawood Ibrahim, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said.

"We have arrested some most wanted terrorists (of late) and have killed a few on the border. As far as Dawood (Ibrahim) is concerned, we are in touch with (US agency) the FBI," Shinde said, talking to reporters.

"There is already a red corner notice (against Dawood Ibrahim). We have proposed a joint action with the US (to arrest him). US Attorney General Eric Holder has also agreed to this," he added.

Indian intelligence agencies have claimed for long that the gangster is living in Pakistan.
