During the probe, the police worked on several leads, including technical and intelligence inputs, and got a tip that the accused was residing at Malad in Malvani area of neighbouring Mumbai and was to come to the Dahisar Check Naka, the official said, reported PTI.

Based on the information, the police laid a trap and caught the man when he arrived at the spot on Monday, he said.
