Government is making every effort to arrest fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, who is believed to be hiding in Pakistan, home minister Rajnath Singh said on Tuesday.

"We are trying to arrest him (Dawood). Wherever he is, we will arrest him. Any criminal evading justice should be brought to book. That was the effort of the previous government and it is the effort of our government too," he said during a debate on issues concerning the home ministry.

India's most wanted terrorist, Dawood, is the mastermind of the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai that claimed around 300 lives.

India believes Dawood is living in Pakistan with the active support of that country's intelligence agency, ISI, and continues to be involved in anti-India activities.
