    CBI withdraws ' 50 most wanted' list from website, says document being reviewed
    India - 20 may 2011

    NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday admitted to goofing up on its 'most wanted' list, that was to be handed over to Pakistan, and has now withdrawn the list from its website.

    The investigating agency has also removed the Red Corner Notice linked to the list for the time being.

    "The entire list is being reviewed. We have no plan to recall the list from Pakistan," Secretary, Internal Security in the Home Ministry, U K Bansal, told reporters.

    While referring to the CBI's action to suspend and transfer some officials responsible for the goof up, he said responsibility has been fixed and action has been taken.

    Bansal also said the home ministry would conduct an exercise to ensure that there is no such mistake in the future.

    Earlier, CBI Director A P Singh has ordered a complete review of the Interpol wing and the most wanted list would be thoroughly scrutinised in consultation with state police and other agencies.

    Feroz Rashid Khan named in India's most wanted list of terrorists allegedly hiding in Pakistan was found to be in Arthur Road Jail facing trial in the 1993 serial blasts case. Listed in the dossier as the criminal No 24 - Feroz - was shown as a wanted accused in the blasts case along with the absconding mafia don Dawood Ibrahim.

    Earlier, the case of Wazhul Kamar Khan being in the list had also left the government red faced. Khan, who was arrested last year for his alleged role in the 2003 Mulund train blasts, lives in Mumbai suburb Thane's Waghle Estate with his mother, wife and children, after being let off on bail.
