While Listening to Karachi tower, heard ATC using word like "TABDO" repeatedly.. (looks like a location) .e.g. "Proceed to TABDO.." and position "GOLF PAPA" and "ZULU BRavo".. Whats TABDO? How to locate these positions?

5 letter names are intersections on airways, arrivals or departures. TABDO sounds like one of those. 2 letters could either be taxiway intersections or radio beacons so depending on who said it would give you a clue. I did happen to find ZB, it is a beacon in the town of Zhob. That was a lucky find since I don't have aviation charts for that part of the world any more.

Found TAPDO instead in ICAO documents to be a place on High seas between Pakistan / Oman Coordinate 242400N, 0612000E. Could not find anything on Map though , must be an imaginary intersection point.
