According to police, Nadeem, a resident of North East Delhi, was arrested on a tip-off and a country-made pistol with two live cartridges was seized from his possession, he said.
"During interrogation, he disclosed that he used to grab disputed properties and during one such dispute he killed a man and also tried to burn the body to conceal the identity," the police official said.
For the last five months, he was evading arrest by changing his hideouts regularly, he said.
He regularly changed his mobile numbers to conceal his position and changed around 20 mobile numbers during his run, the police said.
