Ravindra Patil, former bodyguard of Bollywood actor Salman Khan and an eyewitness in a hit-and-run case was arrested from Mahableshwar early on Sunday.
Patil was arrested after a non-bailable warrant was issued against him.
The non-bailable warrant was issued against him as he failed to appear for trial in the case in which Salman Khan is accused of killing one person and injuring four by ramming his car in to a bakery in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002.
Even after the warrant was issued he did not appear on four occasions and was reported missing.
Crime Branch sleuths have arrested him from Mahabaleshwar and brought him to Mumbai. He has been lodged in Bandra jail and will be produced before a holiday magistrate on Sunday, police sources added.
