The British government has seized the UK properties of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, reports CNN News-18.

The UK authorities froze Ibrhaim's assets including a hotel in Warwickshire and other residential properties across the Midlands. The Midlands' properties were under the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) radar as well. India has been in talks with the UK authorities in this regard and had sent a related dossier in 2015.

The list includes 21 of Dawood's aliases including Abdul Aziz, Abdul Hamid, among others.

ED officers are also targeting other assets of Dawood Ibrahim such as a hotel in Dartford, Kent, another in Essex and several more in central London.

The ownership patterns and other financial details are currently being probed.

India had earlier sent a list to Scotland Yard of over a dozen properties — houses, flats and hotels — spread across London and its outskirts that are allegedly owned by Ibrahim through his known associates.

Earlier this year, the UAE government had reportedly seized Ibrahim's assets in the country worth Rs 15,000 crore.

The UAE government was said to have begun an inquiry into properties of Ibrahim in Dubai after receiving a confidential list from India.
