NEW DELHI: The BJP has claimed that properties worth Rs. 15,000 crore, owned by underworld gangster Dawood Ibrahim, one of India’s most wanted criminals, have been seized in UAE on the basis of a dossier provided by the Indian government.
“Major diplomatic success of PM Modi: One of India’s most wanted criminals, Dawood Ibrahim’s properties worth Rs. 15,000 crore seized in UAE,” the official Twitter account of the Bharatiya Janata Party said.
“Master stroke diplomacy by PM Narendra Modi hits at the right place. Prime Minister had handed over the list of his (Dawood’s) assets to the UAE government during his 2015 visit and demanded action,” a graphic put out by it said.
