The CBI has arrested an Indian national against whom an Interpol red corner notice was issued on the request of authorities in the UK on charges of rape and murder.
The CBI sleuths arrested Aman Vyas from IGI Airport while he was allegedly trying to flee to Bangkok on Sunday.
According to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) spokesperson Dharini Mishra, Aman Vyas had gone to the UK on student visa.
He was facing two cases of rape, one case of sexual assault and attempted murder and one case of rape and murder, when he allegedly ran away from there. All these cases were registered between March 24 and May 30, 2009.
His alleged victims were women aged 59, 46 and 35. The youngest of them was allegedly murdered by him.
The CBI was requested by the UK authorities to locate and arrest Vyas. The CBI got information through sources that Vyas may try to flee from India. He was detected at IGI Airport. The CBI will now begin the judicial process to extradite him to the UK.
The information about the alleged sexual attacks emerged after the murder of the youngest woman who was raped and strangled to death while she was returning to her boyfriend’s address from
a local supermarket in east London. Her body was found in a small park in Queens Road, Walthamstow on May 30, 2009. Using DNA samples, the UK police linked the crime with other sexual assault cases.
