Soon after the incident, two accused — Mobin Azad Saifi and Prakash — were arrested but Vishnoi remained at large. He stopped using his cellphone and kept changing his address frequently to avoid detection. A reward of Rs 20,000 was announced after he was declared a proclaimed offender by the court on November 8.
South District DCP Romil Baniya, whose team arrested the accused, said they received information that Vishnoi will come from Jaipur to Mathura on December 6. “At around 3.30 am, we arrested him from Mathura bus stand,” the DCP said.
He added that Vishnoi used to live in Mumbai between 2007 and 2013 and worked in private companies.
Since 2014, he was involved in cheating cases in Delhi. He was arrested in 2015 by Delhi Police’s Crime Branch for providing fake bank accounts.
