Dawood extradition will have dramatic effect: Advani

MUMBAI, JAN. 20. The Home Minister, L. K. Advani, said today that if Pakistan extradites underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim, one of the 20 terrorists and criminals wanted by India, it would have a ``dramatic effect'' on the people here.

Describing Ibrahim, who masterminded the serial bomb blasts in the metropolis, as ``personification of terrorism in India,'' Mr. Advani said ``if Pakistan extradites Dawood to India, then it will have dramatic effect on the pulse of the people here.'' Mr. Advani, who was addressing a public meeting here, said he had stressed on the need for an extradition treaty between India and Pakistan during his talks with Pakistan President, Pervez Musharraf, prior to Agra summit.
