According to intelligence inputs received on one of the proclaimed offenders on Sunday, a team was put together to pursue the lead and bring him to book.
The team of Delhi Police activated interstate informers and conducted local inquiry in areas, gathering actionable intelligence on the proclaimed offender Ali, eventually resulting in his arrest.
