Chattra Pal, the alleged mastermind behind the high profile November 2006 kidnapping of Adobe India CEO Naresh Gupta's son, was arrested in Noida on early Thursday, the police said.

Chhattrapal and his accomplices had abducted Gupta's three-year-old son Anant on November 13, 2006, and demanded a Rs 5 million ransom. Anant was found five days later. The police had then arrested Chhattrapal and two more people on charges of kidnapping.

Chhatra Pal had escaped from police custody on Feb 4, while he was being produced before a court.

Following a tip off, police arrested Chhatra Pal early Thursday from Rabupura locality of Noida where he had gone to get money from a friend, officials said.

Gupta claimed that on March 28, Chhatra Pal had threatened to kidnap Anant again. The police denied this but tightened security at the MNC executive's house in Noida.
