Indian intelligence agencies, keeping close tabs on movement of Dawood and his men, received specific inputs over the past few days about the gangster shifting base. Sources added that Inter-Services Intelligence appeared extremely wary of the new Indo-US cooperation to fight terrorism, with special focus on targeting the D-Company network.
This had come up during he extended dialogue between National Security Advisor AK Doval and state department officials in the US earlier this month. Sources said that cooperation on Dawood would be the first test of the partnership between the two countries with US playing a crucial role in choking the funds to the DCompany. It is suspected that Dawood has been using money raised by smuggling narcotics to fund terror activities in Afghanistan and India.
