They nabbed the person, identified as Panjya alias Bansi Vanshya Bond, and it came to light that he was wanted in a case of an alleged attack on excise officials on December 5, 2019, senior police inspector Ajay Vasave said.

The police also seized a pistol, two live cartridges and five mobile phones from the accused and impounded the car, he said.

The man was among the five persons who had allegedly attacked a team of excise officials in 2019 when they impounded a vehicle smuggling banned liquor into Maharashtra at Charoti check post, he said.

The other accused had been arrested soon after the incident, he said.

A case was registered against the accused under relevant Indian Penal Code provisions, the police added.
