In a big diplomatic boost for India, the UK government is learnt to have sealed properties worth thousands of crores linked to India’s most wanted Dawood Ibrahim, signaling a massive crackdown against the fugitive gangster.
Times Now reported today that the seized properties also include a hotel.
The action comes two years after India had handed over a dossier on Dawood to UK back in 2015.
In January this year, some unconfirmed reports had said that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government may also have moved to seize assets of 1993 Mumbai blasts mastermind Dawood Ibrahim, on its soil.
Dawood, who is currently said to be based in Pakistan, has been closely tracked by India because of his complicity in the 1993 serial blasts as well as terror acts masterminded by Pakistan’s spy agency ISI.
