Dawood Ibrahim

The British government on Tuesday seized the properties of Dawood Ibrahim - one of the world's most wanted gangsters - in the country.

Indian authorities were in talks with their United Kingdom counterparts in this regard and had also sent a dossier in 2015 consisting a list of over a dozen properties - houses, flats and hotels - owned by the fugitive gangster.

According to Mirror, the 1993 Mumbai blast accused appears on the latest UK Treasury department's Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets, updated last month. The list from the treasury also lists the addresses of Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan, as recorded. The frozen assets include properties in Midlands, a Warwickshire hotel and also residential properties in Midlands. He is estimated to be worth $6.7 billion while rewards totalling $25million are on offer for his capture, according to Forbes business magazine.

Dawood is believed to be in Pakistan now and has been closely monitored by India for his complicity in the 1993 serial blasts and other crimes, including conducting terror acts on Indian soil reportedly masterminded by Pakistan's spy agency ISI. According to The Free Press Journal, the dossier contained over a dozen properties - houses, flats and hotels - spread across London and its outskirts that are allegedly owned by Dawood through his known associates. He is hiding in Pakistan's Karachi for years.

In January 2017, it was reported that United Arab Emirates' government had seized wanted Dawood's properties worth Rs 15,000 crore.

The sanctions prohibit the transfer of funds to anyone on the list and freezes any assets they may hold in the UK. It also lists 21 aliases used by the don.

"We expect them to walk the walk.it is incumbent upon every government to do whatever they possibly can to get Dawood back", he added.

These are: Dawood Ebrahim, Sheikh Dawood Hassan, Abdul Hamid Abdul Aziz, Anis Ibrahim, Aziz Dilip, Daud Hasan Shaikh Ibrahim Kaskar, Daud Ibrahim Memon Kaskar, Dawood Hasan Ibrahim Kaskar, Dawood Ibrahim Memon, Dawood Sabri, Kaskar Dawood Hasan, Shaikh Mohd Ismail Abdul Rehman, Dowood Hassan Shaikh Ibrahim, Shaikh Ismail Abdul and Hizrat.
