Rome : With Dawood Ibrahim, the man behind the 1993 Mumbai bombings, still out of its reach, India  said the masterminds of the heinous serial blasts are sitting in safe havens in Pakistan, which has taken no action against them despite being provided with credible evidence.

Shinde said, India continues to face a “high degree” of terrorist threats on several fronts, in particular of cross-border terrorism. “Terrorism in South Asia has increasingly emerged as an effective strategic weapon,” he said.

The Home Minister said in spite of regular dialogue with the neighbouring country and handing over of credible evidence to it, the masterminds of one of the most heinous act of terror of last century — the 1993 Mumbai blasts — in which 257 people died and 713 were injured were still sitting in safe havens and yet to be brought to book.
