Therefore, it is believed that the other escapees will also be captured by the security agencies soon.
Mintoo was arrested in Delhi on Monday morning. He had shaved off his beard and mustache to evade identification.
Even though Mintoo was disguised, he was caught due to the solid information received by the intelligence agencies. It is now known that he was planning to leave Delhi and go to Goa.
It is still unclear as to how Mintoo reached Delhi and who he intended to meet there. Security agencies are throughly investigating Mintoo’s activities.
