PANAJI: The crime branch of Goa police on Friday placed Afroz Saiyadbin Arab, a Gujarat native, under preventive arrest with the arrangement to hand over the accused to Gujarat police. Arab is booked in a murder case registered at Limdbdi police station in Gujarat.

DySP Pradipsinh Jadega, associated with the Gujarat police, called on his Goan counterparts and informed them that Arab was wanted in a murder case. Police said the accused had killed his friend in Limbdi on April 30 and has been untraceable since.

Tracking his whereabouts based on his mobile location, the accused was located at South Goa on Thursday, but when the crime branch team headed by crime branch PSI Laxi Amonka and other police personnel under the supervision of crime branch SP Priyanka Kashyap reached the location, they couldn't trace the accused.

Police said that when they started the search again on Friday, his location was traced to North Goa. Having checked his call record, police learnt that he was in touch with a local in Goa. On further investigation, the local informed the police that the accused was in search of a job. Police then laid a trap with the help of the local and called the accused to Campal. "As soon as the accused reached Campal, we detained him and placed him under preventive arrest," police said.

Crime branch officials said the Gujarat police team has already left from Gujarat to take custody of the accused.
