New Delhi – Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said Sunday the government will explore every possible means, including carrying out a covert or a special operation, to neutralise Pakistan-based terrorists Dawood Ibrahim or Hafiz Saeed.

Asked on Aaj Tak’s Seedhi Baat programme why was a military operation not carried out against Dawood Ibrahim as was done in the case of Myanmar-based insurgents who had struck in Manipur, Rathore said: “Ho sakta hai karein. Lekin karne se pehle charcha nahi hogi. Karne ke baad ho sakta hai ho jaye.

Ho sakta hai na bhi ho. Ye depend karta hai ki jo operation hua hai usko sarkar darza deti hai ki kya woh covert operation hona chahiye ya special operation hona chahiye (It is possible that an operation is launched. But it will not be talked about before it is launched. It might be talked about later. This depends on whether the government decides to carry out a covert operation or a special operation).”
