New Delhi: In September 2013, Indian commandos had entered Pakistan secretly and were all set to kill Dawood Ibrahim, India’s most wanted terrorist and accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts,but a last-minute phone call aborted the operation, according to some media reports.
According to these reports, nine agents were selected for this operation by RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) and the team was given the code name ‘Super Boys’. The operatives were given passports of Sudan, Bangladesh and Nepal.
RAW had also sought active support from Israel’s Mossad and September 13 was chosen as the date of execution, according to these reports.
These reports further say that Dawood Ibrahim was living in Karachi at that time and used to travel from his Clifton Road home to the Defence Housing Society every day.
‘The Super Boys’decided to use this opportunity and a dargah on the way was chosen as the spot for execution.
On September 13, 2013, the nine commandos took positions across the road and they had all the details of Dawood’s car in addition to a latest video which exposed his present appearance.
But the entire plan had to be aborted after a mysterious phone call came minutes before the execution.
There is no information as to who made that call at the last moment that forced the plan to be aborted.
