New Delhi, Apr. 6 (ANI): An auto lifter, who stole over thousand vehicles in the past 20 years, has been arrested in connection with TV news producer Soumya Vishwanathan’s murder case.

“Ajay Sethi was arrested by a special team of Delhi Police from Faridabad-Badarpur border on Sunday night and the car used in the crime was recovered,” said H G S Dhaliwal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South).

Sethi was absconding since last month after the arrest of four persons in connection with the murders of Vishwanathan and IT executive Jigisha Ghosh.

On March 23, Delhi Police had arrested Ravi Kapoor, Amit Kumar Shukla, Baljeet Malik and Vijay Kumar for allegedly being involved in murders of Viswanathan and Ghosh.

Sethi, however, had given a slip to the investigators, who had been conducting raids to catch him. (ANI)
