The UK Treasury department's list also mentions four of Dawood's recorded addresses in Pakistan

London: Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim is the only "Indian national" on a newly updated list of financial sanctions by the UK that also includes Sikh terror groups. Dawood, against whom an international arrest warrant has been issued, appears on the UK Treasury department’s ‘Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets in the UK’, with four recorded addresses in Pakistan — all in Karachi.

"Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar" is recorded to have lived at: House No 37, 30th Street - defence, Housing Authority, Karachi, Pakistan; House no. 29, Margalla Road, F 6/2 Street no. 22, Karachi, Pakistan; Noorabad, Karachi, Pakistan (Palatial bungalow in the hilly area); and White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton, Karachi, Pakistan. The Mumbai-born gangster's nationality is listed as "Indian", with a recorded Indian passport which was subsequently revoked by the government of India and then goes on to list a string of Indian and Pakistani passports acquired by him and misused.

Dawood has time and again been reported to be based in Pakistan but Islamabad has denied his presence. Financial sanctions in force in the UK could apply to individuals, entities and governments who may be resident in the UK or abroad.
