New Delhi. If sources are to be believed, shifting of IPL venue to match fixers’ paradise UAE is a part of Indian Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde’s bigger plan to catch fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim.
The sensational news has been confirmed by Home Ministry insiders, and is being seen as Shinde’s most ambitious project, since attending music launch of Rajjo, till date.
Shinde had earlier promised a couple times that he would bring Dawood back to India and it was speculated by experts as the trump card by UPA before the general elections.
“Keeping in mind that Shinde ji himself is a movie buff, he came up with this plan by his own. He was hugely motivated after watching the movie D-Day, and has been thinking of a grand plan to nab the most wanted terrorist of India,” disclosed a close aide of Shinde on condition of anonymity.
The aide further informed that BCCI had wanted to host IPL in South Africa again, as was done during the last general elections. However, it was Shinde who suggested UAE.
“In fact, the government could have provided security to IPL, but Shinde ji intentionally refused it, making a solid ground for shifting the venue to UAE, where Dawood goes when he gets bored of mujras in Pakistan,” the aide further disclosed.
Shinde is banking upon old habits of Dawood, which include match fixing, which will pull him towards this secret trap called IPL.
“Shnde ji knows Dawood very well,” the aide pointed out.
As per sources, an Indian match-fixer (not Gurunath Meiyeppan or Vindoo Dara Singh) has already been planted as a mole in the inner circles of the D Company, without Dawood’s knowledge.
Not only the undercover match-fixer, Indian secret service agents have also reached major cities of UAE and are doing the groundwork.
“Shinde ji is personally taking care of each and every detail. He himself is undergoing the basic combat training, and most probably will lead the secret service team on the D-Day,” a home ministry official told Faking News.
“From being associated with foot in mouth, he will become an icon of head over shoulders,” the official claimed.
When asked for comments, the Union Home Minister confirmed that such a plan was in place. He thanked Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi for the opportunity to catch Dawood.
“But don’t tell anyone, we have to plan this in a secret manner,” Shinde said addressing a press conference.
