Central Exposing the State Protection and Luxurious Lifestyle of Crime Syndicates in Pakistan

2 min read

The Indian envoy at the UN has stated that the crime syndicate responsible for the 1993 bomb blasts is receiving 5-star hospitality in Pakistan and state protection, hinting at Dawood Ibrahim’s D-company.

During a Global Counter-Terrorism Council event, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador T S Tirumurti emphasized the need to address the connections between terrorism and transnational organized crime effectively.

Tirumurti highlighted that the syndicate behind the 1993 bomb blasts is not only shielded by the state but also enjoying luxurious accommodations.

His comments were aimed at D-Company and its leader Ibrahim, believed to be in hiding in Pakistan.

In August 2020, Pakistan officially acknowledged Ibrahim’s presence on its soil, imposing sanctions on numerous banned terror groups, including the wanted Indian underworld don.

As the Chair of the UNSC Counter-terrorism Committee for 2022, Tirumurti emphasized the importance of UN sanctions regimes, such as the 1267 Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee, in preventing terror financing, terrorist travel, and arms access by terrorist organizations.

He expressed concerns about the challenges in implementing these measures and stressed the need for objective, swift, credible, evidence-based, and transparent decision-making processes in the Council’s sanctions regimes.

Tirumurti also mentioned the shortcomings in asset freeze measures by member states, partly due to deficiencies in the Committee’s existing guidelines, as highlighted in a recent report by the Monitoring Team.
