Home minister Amit Shah spoke on the revelation of the link between former Union Minister Praful Patel and his wife and Dawood Ibrahim’s associate Iqbal Mirchi. He stated that the real estate deal between Mumbai blast accused Iqbal Mirchi’s wife and former Union minister Praful Patel was “nothing short of treason”. He also claimed that the onus was now on Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and NCP boss Sharad Pawar to come clean on the issue. Shah also emphasised that a red corner notice issued by Interpol was pending against Mirchi, a drug lord and a close associate of fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
