Mumbai: The United States today slapped sanctions against underworld don Dawood Ibrahim's two top aides Chhota Shakeel and Tiger Memon  for their role in drug trafficking in the region reports PTI.

According to the PTI reports the US Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated Chhota Shakeel and Ibrahim 'Tiger' Memon as Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (Kingpin Act) for their roles as part of a criminal organization run by Dawood Ibrahim known as 'D Company'.

Dawood was named as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist in October 2003, and in June 2006, he was named as a Significant Foreign Narcotics Trafficker.

Also in June 2006, the Dawood Organization was named as a Significant Foreign Narcotics Trafficker.
