New Delhi: Nearly 20 years after serial bomb blasts in Mumbai killed 257 people and left 713 others injured, Pakistan continues to provide safe haven to fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim, India said at an Interpol meeting in Rome Monday.

Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, addressing the Interpol general assembly, pointed out that red corner notices were pending against the crime don, according to an official statement issued here.

Shinde also drew a parallel between the 1993 bomb blasts and the 2008 terror strike in Mumbai, and noted that along with the 9/11 mayhem in the US, these attacks underscored the inter-state nature of planning by terrorists and the need for increased global cooperation among intelligence and investigation agencies.

Noting that countering violent extremism and terrorism were key global challenges, Shinde warned that terrorism by its methods and content rejected democratic and peaceful means of engagement.

"It attacks pluralism and multi-culturalism. Thus for a liberal, democratic and diverse society and country like India, terrorism and terrorist groups pose a challenge, which have to be countered and effectively defeated," he said.
