On 16 January, the US Treasury Department announced that it was blocking the property of two Indian nationals, Shaikh Anis Ibrahim Kaskar and Aziz Moosa Bilakhia, together with one Pakistani entity, Mehran Paper Mill, pursuant to the Kingpin Act. The Treasury Department alleges that the two individuals are long-time members of “D Company,” a South Asian criminal organisation reportedly led by Dawood Ibrahim. According to the Treasury Department, Anis Ibrahim, the brother of Dawood Ibrahim, and Bilakhia are involved in various illegal activities, including narcotics trafficking, extortion, debt collection, contract killings and money laundering. Anis Ibrahim is accused of involvement in the 1993 Mumbai bombings, and Bilakhia is also wanted by Indian authorities in connection with these bombings.
