UN updates its dossier on Dawood Ibrahim

Geneva, Aug 23 : The United Nation Sanctions Monitoring Committee has updated its dossier on international terrorist Dawood Ibrahim.

In its latest update, it is for the first time that a reference has been made to Dawood's wife Mehjabeen Shaikh.

The update, which is the fifth one since 2003, includes several aliases of Dawood as 'Dawood Bhai', 'Bada Seth', 'Bada Bhai', 'Mucchad' and 'Haji Sahab.' Three house addresses have also been retained indicating continued validity of those addresses while others have been deleted from the dossier.

The United Nations has removed three of the nine places cited by India as the addresses of Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan after a committee found them to be incorrect.

The Security Council Committee pursuant to Resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) enacted the amendments specified with underline and strike through in the entry" concerning Dawood on its ISIL (Da'esh) and Al-Qaida Sanctions List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo on August 22.

India in an evidence to show that Dawood is holed up in Pakistan had in a dossier listed nine residences of the underworld don, stating that he is known to frequently change his locations and addresses in Pakistan.
