The Mumbai Police arrested a 70-year-old man, who had been absconding in a kidnapping and rape case for the last 40 years, from Agra in Uttar Pradesh, an official said on Tuesday, the PTI reported on Tuesday.

The accused was identified as Papa alias Dawood Bandu Khan, he said.

He was brought to Mumbai on a transit remand and will be produced before the court here, he said.
