US curbs on Dawood's two top aides

The United States on Tuesday designated underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s two close aides as key drug traffickers and placed sanctions on them aimed at constricting their access to business and financial networks.

The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control designated Chhota Shakeel and Ibrahim ‘Tiger’ Memon as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers for their roles as part of ‘D Company’, a criminal group run by Dawood. It said Chhota Shakeel is Dawood’s lieutenant who coordinates for D Company with “other organised crime and terror groups.”

Interpol has issued provisional arrest warrants or “red notices” for Shakeel and Memon.
