Dawood Ibrahim, 59, is believed to be hiding in Pakistan's Karachi and has been tracked by India for over two decades.
New Delhi had in its dossier submitted addresses that it said were Dawood's hideouts in Pakistan. It also said that he had "amassed immense property in Pakistan" and frequently changed his locations in the country.
Based on India's inputs, the UN sanctions committee made changes to its entry on Dawood last year. Action that is taken against UN-designated terrorists includes blocking of wealth and accounts, a travel and arms ban.
