The man to whom he had given the gold chain, identified as Shabbir Khan, was also held from Igatpuri," he said.
"Khan is a murder accused. We seized gold ornaments worth Rs 4.20 lakh as well as the motorcycle worth Rs 1.5 lakh. Six chain snatching cases registered in Kalwa, Kasarwadavali and Vartak Nagar police stations have been solved. Jafri is involved in at least 14 chain snatching and motorcycle theft cases," Thorat said.
