New Delhi: India’s most wanted terrorist, said to be the mastermind of 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, Dawood Ibrahim, has gangrene, as per a media report.
As per CNN-News18, doctors treating him say that gangrene is at such an advanced stage that the underworld don is immobile and he is unlikely to be cured fully.
At the same time, his gangrene is reportedly life-threatening. The report added that gangrene was caused by loss of effective local blood supply due to high BP blood sugar and doctors treating Dawood feel that soon they will have no option but to amputate his legs.
The mafia don is receiving treatment at his Clifton neighbourhood residence and is being treated at Liaquat National Hospital and Combined Military Hospital, both in Karachi.
The report further says that large amount of he body tissue in his legs are already dead. Moreover, he will not be moved out of Karachi with the decision being taken in a high-level meeting.
As per the report, it was also decided in the same meeting that army doctors would lead treatment. The Mumbai blasts had left 257 dead and more than 700 injured. Apart from Dawood, Tiger Memon and Yakub Memon were also said to be part of the conspiracy to carry out terror attacks.
Yakub Memon was hanged to death in July 2015 for this crime. Despite India giving many dossier to Pakistan on the mafia don, it has been maintaining that Dawood is not in their country.
There is also an Interpol red corner notice against Dawood for his role in the 1993 blasts. And, in 2003, US designated him as a global terrorist with links to terror groups.
