  • UK authorities seize mafia boss Dawood Ibrahim's assets worth INR42,000 crore

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

The UK Government has initiated seizing the assets of Dawood Ibrahim after a dossier was handed over to it by Modi Government in 2015.

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 Treasury sanctioned document listed three recorded addresses for Ibrahim in Pakistan, including one sprawling property called The White House near the Saudi mosque in the seaside suburb of Clifton in Karachi, Pakistan.

The assets frozen include properties in Midlands.

A major chunk of the fugitive underworld don's assets, worth a whopping $6.7 billion (more than Rs 42,000 crore), have been seized by the United Kingdom government, according to an India Today report.

Dawood, the prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts in which 260 people were killed, reportedly runs his crime empire from Pakistan's Karachi.

The dreaded gangster also carries a rewards totalling United States dollars 25 million on his head for any information leading to his arrest, according to the Forbes business magazine. Moreover, it also includes a list of 21 pseudonyms used by him.

The sanctions prohibit the transfer of funds to anyone on the list and freeze any assets the targets may hold in the UK.

The UK released an updated list of financial sanctions earlier this month and Dawood was the only "Indian national" on the list.

- The fourth address on record until past year: House no.29, Margalla Road, F 6/2 Street no.22, Karachi, Pakistan is no longer part of the records. Dawood's place of birth is recorded as Kher, Ratnagiri, Maharashtra, and his nationality is listed as "Indian" with a recorded Indian passport which was subsequently revoked by the Government of India.

However, according to DNA, a fortnight ago, former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf had hinted that Dawood was in his country, but also added that it would not assist India to capture him.
