Laddan, 47, was wanted in a case of Arms Act registered against him after a country-made pistol and three live rounds were found in his premises, they said, reported the PTI.
“We have apprehended Laddan from Telangana in connection with an FIR registered against him under the Arms Act,” a senior police officer said.
After raids at four places in connection with alleged irregularities in the recruitment to the Delhi Waqf Board, Laddan has been evading arrest. Police had last Friday registered three FIRs after the ACB raid. One of them was against Hamid Ali, 54, another of Khan’s aide, after an unlicensed weapon and some cartridges were recovered from him. He has been arrested in this case, said the officer.
The ACB seized Rs 24 lakh in cash and two unlicensed weapons in these raids. The arrest of Laddan has come on a day when the AAP MLA was presented in the court for extended custody. He will be in ACB custody for five more days.
