SC: Donít attach Dawood mom, sister properties

The Supreme Court on Monday stayed attachment proceedings for properties of fugitive gangster Dawood Ibrahim's mother and sister in Mumbai.

A bench of Justices T S Thakur and F M I Kalifulla also issued a notice to the Centre on Dawood's mother Amina Bi (dead,petition filed by her legal representative) and sister Hasina Ibrahim Parkar's plea challenging the attachment order of their residential houses.

The two women have seven residential properties in their names ó two in Amina Bi's name and five in Parkar's name. The properties, worth crores, were allegedly acquired with Dawood's ill-gotten wealth.

The petitioners approached the apex court after the Delhi High Court order turned down their plea against the order for seizure of their properties in Mumbai under the Smugglers And Foreign Exchange Manipulators (Forfeiture Of Property) Act (SAFEMA).

They pleaded that they were not served notices duly, hence the subsequent proceedings to attach their properties at Nagpada in south Mumbai were illegal and they should be given a fresh chance to challenge the forfeiture notices.
