The Supreme Court (SC) today ordered the central government to seize properties of the most wanted terrorist and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
This comes after an SC bench headed by Justice R K Agrawal dismissed a plea filed by the underworld don’s family against the attachment of his properties in Mumbai.
It need be recalled that only last November, three south Mumbai properties belonging to the fugitive don were auctioned for Rs 11.58 crore.
The properties were put on auction under the Smugglers and Foreign Exchange Manipulators (Forfeiture of Property) Act.
The three properties were theHotel Raunaq Afroz, also known as Delhi Zaika, Shabnam Guest House and six rooms in Damarwala building.
Dawood has also been linked to a series of properties across Britain, as per recent media reports.
