The sale deed and agreement papers of the Dawood's properties have been enclosed with Letters Rogatory. ED has also provided evidences of money laundering.
If these assets are seized Dawood Ibrahim will not be able to use these properties.
India's intense effort to bring him back always resulted into vein as Pakistan has always denied his presence on its soil. Though, his hideout in Pakistan is considered as world's most open secret.

US designated him as a global terrorist with links to terror groups in 2013.
