The Birmingham Mail reported that Dawood owns a hotel in Warwickshire and other residential properties across the Midlands.

The UK authorities froze Ibrhaim's assets including a hotel in Warwickshire and other residential properties across the Midlands.

Dawood Ibrahim is the only 'Indian national' on an updated list of financial sanctions released by the UK in August this year.

In 2015, Enforcement Directorate officials had visited the Midlands to identify and seize the Mumbai serial blasts mastermind's UK assets.

India has been in talks with the agencies in the United Kingdom regarding the properties of Dawood Ibrahim.

The Treasury sanction document lists 21 aliases and three recorded addresses for Ibrahim in Pakistan including one sprawling property called The White House near the Saudi mosque in the seaside suburb of Clifton in Karachi Pakistan.

"Kaskar Dawood Ibrahim" is recorded to have lived at: House No 37, 30th Street - Defence Housing Authority, Karachi, Pakistan; Noorabad, Karachi, Pakistan (Palatial bungalow in the hilly area); and White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton, Karachi, Pakistan.

A fourth address on record until last year - House no.29, Margalla Road, F 6/2 Street no.22, Karachi, Pakistan - is no longer part of the records, reports PTI.
