"After the Mumbai bomb blasts, 100 of the 123 accused were convicted. Of the convicts, 37, including Dawood, are absconding. He is on our radar. He is also in the wanted lists of Interpol and the UN," Kumar told reporters in Kolkata.

"All police forces and international organisations are coming together. We hope we will be able to find him," he said.
