Ghazipur: Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Saturday stoked yet another controversy by claiming that he has proof of India’s most-wanted gangster Dawood Ibrahim being present during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprise meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Lahore last year.
“It is impossible for a head of any nation to go anywhere without getting clearance from the intelligence department. The Prime Minister of the largest democracy went to his enemy nation without telling anyone. Breaking all international laws he went to Pakistan and also met Dawood there,” Khan said.
Khan asserted that he is ready to provide evidence if Prime Minister Modi denies or challenges his claims.
“If anyone wants to challenge it, they can but I have the evidence. Prime Minister Modi should tell about the people he met there in the closed room. There was Nawaz Sharif, his daughter, wife and Dawood,” he added.
However, Indian Government spokesperson Frank Noronha told ANI that Azam Khan’s allegations are totally unfounded, baseless and false.
Earlier in December, Prime Minister Modi surprised everyone by making a quick stopover in Lahore to wish Sharif on the occasion of his birthday.
The two prime ministers held an hour and a half long meeting at Prime Minister Nawaz’s personal residence in Lahore at Jati Umra on December 25. The parties in the petition are Federal government, Ministry of Civil Aviation and Airport Security Force (ASF). (ANI)
