The sacked Axis Bank manager, Anil Dubey, who had escaped from the clutches of police from Vasai court, while he was brought for a hearing in a murder and robbery case last week, has been arrested by the crime branch sleuths on Monday, the police said.


Dubey, on pretext of going to washroom near court premises had fled away on a motorcycle. The rider of the bike, Chand Badshah Aziz Khan was waiting for him as planned by the duo for over six months ago.



“We have arrested both of them and seized the motorcycle used in the crime,” said a MBVV police officer.


After escaping from the custody, Dubey and Khan were hiding in slum pockets of Nalasopara East. The cops were on high alert as Dubey could have escaped to either Nepal or Punjab. He knew some people in Nepal and Punjab since he had completed his studies, official sources said.

The night patrolling and security arrangements of MBVV police foiled Dubey’s plan, sources added.
