There are reports that infamous underworld figure Dawood Ibrahim was admitted to the hospital in Karachi, Pakistan, which is stoking concerns that he may have contracted a poisoning. The 65-year-old man has been living in Karachi and evading law enforcement around the world. He has been sought by Indian officials for a considerable amount of time.
Pakistan’s Geo TV News also reported on the ongoing discussions on social media, acknowledging the rumours surrounding Dawood Ibrahim’s health after his admission to a Karachi hospital. The reports suggest that the cause of his hospitalisation is poisoning, though no concrete evidence or confirmation has been provided.
The Mumbai Police were trying to gain more information on the hospitalisation of the underworld don from his relatives Alishah Parkar and Sajid Wagle.
In January, the son of Haseena Parker, Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, told the National Investigating Agency (NIA) that the underworld don stays in Karachi after marrying for the second time.
Dawood Ibrahim, the mastermind behind the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, has been a fugitive, residing in Pakistan for several years. The devastating bombings resulted in over 250 casualties and left thousands injured. Authorities are closely monitoring his health condition amidst heightened concerns and swirling rumours.
