Personnel of the Delhi police and Tihar jail security staff worked together to apprehend Javed, who had escaped from the high-security prison on Saturday, from his friend’s house in a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda district on Tuesday night.

The team on Wednesday acquired a one-day transit remand for Javed — to bring him back to Delhi from Lasisa village — from a court in Gonda.

Delhi Police had earlier claimed that Javed had been arrested from his ancestral residence in Gonda district. Uttar Pradesh police, however, said that Javed was from Bihar and had no relatives in Gonda.

The team that arrested Javed comprised three policemen from Hari Nagar police station and two security personnel of Tihar jail. The team drove down to Gonda and informed the district Superintendent of Police Rajendra Pratap Singh Yadav  that they had traced Javed’s location to the village and would arrest him soon.

The team from Delhi reached Javed’s friend Mohammad Syed’s home in Lasisa at approximately 10 pm on Tuesday.  The team nabbed Javed at the residence of Syed, who works in Delhi, said Station House Officer of Itiyathok police station PK Jha. Syed was reportedly away in Delhi and Javed had taken refuge with his family. Delhi police had the address of Syed’s residence as he had earlier moved a bail application for Javed in a Delhi court, said Jha.

“He had reached Gonda on Tuesday morning, in search of a hideout,” a senior police officer said. During questioning, Javed told police that he hailed from Muzaffarpur, Bihar.
