NEW DELHI: A man wanted in connection with a case registered under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act has been arrested in Jahangirpuri here by the Crime Branch of the Delhi police.

According to the police, Jaipal has been involved in land grabbing cases and had been absconding since April last year. He carried a reward of Rs.25,000 on his head.

Jagbir Singh, an associate of Jaipal, was recently arrested by a Special Cell team from Balia in UP.

He allegedly prepared forged documents of plots in the name of one of his associates and forcibly occupied the land. The plots were restored to the rightful owners only after they shelled out huge sums of money.
