Ashok Bihari alias Kadir Khan, who had been hiding in West Bengal using different names, was picked up from Howrah area by a special team of police from Paradip, said Additional Superintendent of Police, Gadadhar Pradhani.
With this, a total of eleven people have so far been arrested by the police in connection with the killing of shipping company official Mahendra Swain here on October 26, last year, the ASP said adding efforts are on to nab three others in the sensational murder case.
Swain had been gunned down in Madhuban area in this port town apparently due to business rivalry over stevedoring work in Paradip port, police said.
Those arrested so far in the case include prominent businessman and Managing Director of Odisha Stevedores Ltd (OSL), Mahimananda Mishra and his close aide Basant Bal. The two were arrested by a police team from Thailand in December last year, police said.
