NEW DELHI: With India firming up its ties with the UAE through a visit by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the Gulf country and the subsequent visit of UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan to New Delhi, it seems things are moving in the right direction in the Dawood Ibrahim case.It is not yet confirmed whether the UAE Government has started attaching the properties of the underworld don and India’s most wanted terrorist, but sources said the authorities are carrying out a probe into his assets and companies.

However, a senior government official denied it when asked whether India received any communication from the UAE on Dawood’s assets.

Dawood is reportedly operating at least five entities through proxy ownership and some of his close aides directly handle affairs of Oasis Oil & Lube LLC, Al Noor Diamond, Oasis Power LLC, Dolphin Construction and Moin Garments.

Besides, Dawood is said to have invested huge sums in Dubai’s real estate and owns several housing projects that are being looked after by Javed, a Pakistani national.

Indian Intelligence report indicated that Feroz, a close aide of Dawood, handles affairs of the don’s companies and stays in Dubai.

For long, Dawood had a free run in the Gulf countries. But things have started to change  after India developed strategic ties with several Middle East countries.
