RK Singh on Shinde: As Maoist Yogendra Yadav of Political Guru of Rahul, Pawar is political guru of Shinde:
In his interview to TV channels, R K Singh claimed Delhi Police was stoppe former home secretary now BJP-leader RK Singh on Monday Jan 13 claimed Delhi Police was stopped by Shinde from questioning a Mumbai-based businessman, who is said to have "some kind of links" with Dawood Ibrahim, in connection with the betting in Indian Premier League, a T-20 cricketing tournament.
R K Singh further said US has offered no help to India as far as bringing most wanted terrorist Dawood Ibrahim back from Pakistan is concerned. At a press conference last week, Shinde had said that Dawood was in Pakistan and joint efforts were being made with the US to nab him. In an interview, RK Singh said, "Firstly, if a third country's intelligence agency is agreeing to help you, you don't talk about it in public... Secondly FBI has offered no such help...so this statement of bringing back Dawood with the help of FBI is wrong. There is even no assurance from FBI on Dawood, I was present at that conference with (Home Minister Sushilkumar) Shinde... he is lying."

The United States declared Dawood Ibrahim a "global terrorist" in 2003. Why did US not kill Dawood and Saeed as US killed Osama bin laden?
DNA reported on Aug 11, 2007: We gave up chance to get Dawood: According to Joginder Singh, a former director of the CBI, authorities in Dubai had agreed to hand over the fugitive gangster to India in 1996, on condition that India give it custody of a man wanted for murder in that country. But the then Indian government rejected the deal.
TOI reported on Nov, 2005: Pawar confirms Dawood's offer to surrender: Pawar, too, confirmed to TOI on Monday that Ram Jethmalani had met him to discuss Dawood's offer (interestingly, he had denied this when the matter was raised in the legislative assembly in 1994). Dawood had laid down several conditions - that he should be tried only for the blasts case and should be placed only under house arrest, said Pawar, corroborating the Jethmalani and M N Singh versions
Congress Governments never wanted to back Dawood from Pakistan because they afraid that doing so their present and post links with Dwood would be disclosed by the Dawood.
The following facts are in public domain:
Sharad Pawar of that time Congress (Not NCP) provided the airplane to transport Dawood Ibrahim's relatives and friends to safety. Salman Khursheed, of congress was the Central Minister of State for External Affairs during the same blasts. Romesh Sharma, of congress was the right hand man of Dawood Ibrahim and made the arrangements to acquire the passport for Dawood's mother in 24 hours.
Babloo Srivastava, general secretary of congress youth organization was Dawood's pointsman and Babloo was accused in 45 cases of murder, extortion, rioting and possession of illegal arms. In over 95% of the instances where Indian politicians have colluded with the Mafia linked to Dawood Ibrahim, the links can be traced back directly to the Congress. Sharma was especially close to Laloo Prasad Yadav, a fact which is evidenced by CBI records of Yadav's office booking rooms for Sharma's stay at Maurya Hotel on three occasions in 1997-98. Yadav also used to be a regular at parties organized by Sharma at his Jai Mata farmhouse in Satbari in Mehrauli. .
When Dawood became Don?
After that Matka king Hazi Mastan and Patel made their millions in gold smuggling. Lala, a Pathan don, dealt in drugs. At this time Dawood Ibrahim and his elder brother Shabir, sons of a Bombay police constable, worked as musclemen for smugglers. When during the Emergency there was a crackdown on Mastan et al., Dawood filled the vacuum by emerging as a gang leader himself. However, he had to flee Bombay in 1985 in the wake of increasing police pressure and threat from new enemies.
