On June 9, a senior police officer said, the accused had abducted Surender Kumar, a businessman dealing in artificial jewellery, in his Swift car from near a temple in Rohini area.
"They drove Kumar in his car for over three hours around the streets in outer Delhi, until a wheel of the car got stuck in a pit and Kumar managed to escape," said the senior officer.
P Karunakaran, additional DCP (outer) said the arrest came following the information received by a police officer that the accused involved in the crime are likely to come near Jaipur Golden hospital.
"Accordingly, a trap was laid and the accused were nabbed travelling in a Swift car which they had robbed from Kumar. They were using the vehicle after changing its registration number plate with a fake one," said Karunakaran.
Efforts are on to nab the other four accused who were also involved in the abduction cum robbery case, the officer said.
