The notorious robber Alauddin, known as the mastermind of the Batadrava police station attack, has been arrested by the Nagaon Police with the help of Darang Police.
He was identified as Alauddin, 28, of Nagaon, who was arrested on suspicion of illegal possession of firearms.
Alauddin reportedly fled from Batadrava with the help of a riverboat and hid immediately after Nagaon police found him as the prime accused.
A team of the Nagaon police reached the district on Thursday evening and launched a massive manhunt with the help of personnel from the Dhula police station to catch Alauddin.
The accused tried to escape, but after chasing him for around six kilometres, the police were able to arrest him from the Mousida area under Dhula police station in Assam’s Darrang district.
Reportedly, the accused was not the first offender. He has been involved in the drug trade and several cases of dacoities. He has many cases pending against him at the Batadrava police station.
