Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.

Dawood Ibrahim is wanted by India for the 1993 Mumbai blasts that killed 256 people.

According to India Today, the 'underworld don' is undergoing treatment at the Liaquat National Hospital and Combined Military Hospital at Karachi.

In August last year, a Hindustan Times report had cited fresh evidence in the form of a telephone bill and a passport to support India's claim that Dawood Ibrahim is in Pakistan.

The bill mentioned D-13, Block 4, Karachi Development Authority, Sch 5, Clifton, as the address, and was issued by the Pakistan Telecommunications Company Limited. The passport had a recent image of Dawood, which shows him now to be clean shaven and with a receding hairline.
