The ancestral home of the fugitive underworlder Don Dawood Ibrahim in the Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra will soon be converted into a Sanatan school.

The childhood home of Ibrahim was bought by lawyer Ajay Srivastav when it was auctioned for Rs 11,20,000 under the Smugglers and Foreign Exchange Manipulation Act (SAFEMA).

Speaking to a Marathi news channel, Srivastav said he had decided to convert the bungalow into a Sanatan school as Dawood Ibrahim “advertises madrasas” in Pakistan, where he enjoys a safe haven.

Last year, Srivastav had successfully bid on two more properties that previously belonged to the gangster.

Dawood Ibrahim is believed to have lived in the house in the 1980s. One of his four sisters lived on the property, but the family reportedly moved after drowning in a nearby stream. Dawood’s family reportedly failed to return after his father Ibrahim Kaskar accepted a job with the Mumbai Police Department.

Dawood Ibrahim, who runs a huge and diverse illegal business, had become India’s most wanted terrorist after the Mumbai bombings in 1993. In 2003 the United States declared Ibrahim a Specially Designated Global Terrorist. Pakistan first recognized its presence on its soil last year when it imposed sanctions on 88 banned terrorist groups and their leaders, including the underworld India sought.

India has repeatedly urged the Pakistani government to extradite Ibrahim to India to be prosecuted for the crimes he has committed. Ibrahim is said to be based in the southern port city of Karachi.
