The MIDC police on Saturday arrested a suspect who was wanted by the Uttar Pradesh police in connection with an armed robbery committed earlier this year. According to police source, the suspect, Chandan Paswan, 20, was arrested after the police received a tip off according to which he was laying low in a rented room in the Upadhyay Nagar slum in Andheri East. Accordingly, a team visited the spot and took him into custody. 


“After inquiries established that he was indeed the person wanted by the UP police, we arrested him and contacted them, after which he was handed over to them for further investigation,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Datta Nalawade, Zone X.
