During a press briefing, a Haryana Police spokesperson informed that about a dozen cases pertaining to murder, attempt to murder, loot, vehicle snatching and Arms Act were unearthed with the arrest. A team of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) had arrested the most wanted criminal along with his aide following a secret input from an informer.
