"This came to light few days back that Dawood Ibrahim's wife Mehajabin Shaikh had visited Mumbai in 2016, for over 15 days and returned to Pakistan. The government which talks about bringing back Dawood, they did not have information that she had visited Thane and Mumbai and went back," said Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar.
"Isn't it failure of intelligence and a serious threat to national security. Recently, their (BJP) minister in Maharashtra Eknath Khadse had to resign for alleged links with Dawood," he added.
"BJP leaders also attended marriage of Dawood's relatives," Mr Kumar alleged.
