Bhubaneswar: After over a month long game of cat and mouse, the Puri police on Friday arrested Rabi Das one of the main accused of the Niladri Bije incident which took place on July 17. He was among those eight servitors who are allegedly involved in misbehaving with Aravind Agarwal, District Collector of Puri.
Rabi Das was arrested from his Datatota residence in Puri. He has been forwarded to court after the arrest.
Earlier on Monday, the High Court had rejected anticipatory bail pleas of Das. He was evading arrest all these days. Since August 13, Puri police had put up posters of the eight absconders across the town. They have been asked to surrender before the police within a month or their property will be confiscated. The time period of one month lapses on September 12.
