The accused, Vijay Prakash Yadav, 30, is from Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh. He had committed the robbery from the house of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader on July 2 and hidden the valuables in his room. He was arrested from a hotel in Mumbai on Tuesday.
"Police took the help of Mumbai Police and finally located the hotel where he was staying. He was waiting for an opportunity to check out of the hotel but failed to do so due to heavy rains," the officer added.
