Dawood Ibrahim's assets seized in UK, huge diplomatic victory for Modi government

In a significant diplomatic victory for Modi government, a massive crackdown has been initiated by the UK government against Dawood Ibrahim, one of India's most wanted.

According to reports by Times Now, the fugitive gangster's assets has been seized by the UK government.

India had handed over a dossier on Dawood 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.
