United Kingdom government seizes properties of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim


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 appeared on the UK Treasury department's "Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets in the UK" updated, with three recorded addresses in Pakistan, where he is reportedly based.

The sanctions prohibit the transfer of funds to anyone on the list and freezes any assets the targets may hold in the UK. It is a criminal offence to breach a financial sanction.

Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar owns a hotel in Warwickshire and other residential properties across the Midlands. Notably, investigators from India visited the Midlands, back in 2015 to identify properties that belonged to Dawood Ibrahim.

According to the Birmingham Mail, Dawood's Midlands properties has been under scanner of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for a long time.

Dawood is also reported to have properties in Dartford and Essex and in central London. The government listed Ibrahim's 21 aliases and three recorded addresses in Pakistan, as well.

Dawood Ibrahim is accused of the horrendous 1993 blasts and also responsible for masterminding many other dastardly crimes before and after that.

Times Now first reported that a massive crackdown has been initiated by the United Kingdom government against Ibrahim, who is nearly certainly based in Pakistan despite that country's denials.
