A team comprising PI Bhagwant Ingale and API Pushpalata Mandale nabbed him from the lodge room. The police seized a laptop and four cell phones from him.
Meanwhile, the Kerala police had matched the seized items with those stole from the house of the Dubai-based businessman Venugopalan Nair last Monday. "We have now verified that those are the same items that were stolen from the house," said Inspector Prathapan Nair of Peroorkada police station in Thiruvananthapuram.
Daithankar said lodge owner had also called a staffer, who gets a Malayalam newspaper, from a nearby lodge. "That staffer informed someone in Kerala police. A senior officer from Kerala police then informed the Pune police. But by then Singh was in our custody," he said.
The police said records show that he was involved in any offence in Pune. "On Sunday evening, Singh was handed over to Kerala police for transit and would be produced in a court in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday," said Daithankar.
Meanwhile Inspector Nair confirmed that only one case where he had stolen a luxury car along with the recovered items has been registered against him in Kerala. "But his interrogation may bring forward some more facts," he said.
