New Delhi: PM Narendra Modi has yet again scored a major diplomatic victory over Pakistan. PM Modi's efforts to nail down India's most wanted criminal Dawood Ibrahim have paid rich dividends with the UK government seizing Dawood's assets worth a whopping Rs 43,000 crore (6.7 billion US dollar). On his visit to Britain, PM Modi had raised the issue with his British counterpart.
The prime accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts is absconding for over 20 years now. Indian government believes that the second most richest criminal in the world is living in Karachi, a fact that Pakistan denies. The underworld don features on the latest UK Treasury department’s Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets. In 2015, the Modi government is had given a detailed dossier on Dawood's businesses and properties to the British government. UN has already designated Dawood as a global terrorist.
