India has prepared a new list of 48 wanted persons to be handed over to Pakistan soon.

The new list, according to sources, remains the same barring the exclusion of Abdul Rashid and Wazhul Khan, who were mistakenly added to the earlier list that was handed to Pakistan. More embarassing was the fact the two men were very much in India.

There is no change in the order in the new list -- Lashkar-e-Tayiba founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed continues to top the list.

Although underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is the number 2 most wanted man in the world list, he still figures at number 7 in India's list. A source said that the numbering has been done based on the immediate threats that the country faces and also on the basis of intelligence inputs, which spell out the threat perception these persons can cause.

Ilyas Kashmiri: The bigger question is whether the Al Qaeda chief is dead or alive. Indications are that he floated the news of his death to avoid the heat after the death of Osama bin Laden. His role in the 26/11 plot is unclear, but as per his own claims he was the one who thought of such a plan, which was eventually hijacked.

Rashid Abdullah: He shuttles between Pakistan and Bangladesh. He continues to be a headache for India, as he carries out a chunk of the recruitments for the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.

Major Sameer Ali: Another Pakistan army official involved in the 26/11 attack. Along with the rest he too had worked with Headley, the charge against him states.
