British government seizes UK properties of Dawood Ibrahim


London. According to UK news media group Mirror, Ibrahim appeared on the latest UK Treasury department’s Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets which was updated last month.

Let it be known that in 2015, India had handed over a report on Ibrahim to the British government. After the dossier the UK government fastened its action against the underworld don.

The wanted gangster, who is accused of masterminding the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai was mentioned in the UK Treasury Department’s latest Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets. The government listed Ibrahim’s 21 aliases and three recorded addresses in Pakistan, as well.

The UK government froze Ibrahim’s hotel in Warwickshire and residential properties across the Midlands. His properties in the Midlands have been under the radar of India’s Enforcement Directorate, along with his assets in Dartford, Kent and Essex.

In 2015, Forbes magazine issued an estimation that the 61-year-old criminal is having assets worth $6.7 billion (more than Rs 42,000 crore). It can be hoped that soon Ibrahim will also be caught by the authorities.

Earlier this year, the UAE government had reportedly seized Ibrahim’s assets in the country worth Rs 15,000 crore.

The UAE government was said to have begun an inquiry into properties of Ibrahim in Dubai after receiving a confidential list from India.
