Shankar Mishra, the man who has been accused of peeing on a woman passenger on an Air India flight las year, has been sent to 14 days judicial custody following his arrest from Bengaluru.
The accused, who held a top post in the US financial services company Wells Fargo until he was fired on Friday, had been holed up in Bengaluru ever since a lookout circular was issued.
"We assisted the Delhi police in picking him up..," a top police officer told PTI.
Mishra allegedly urinated on the woman, a senior citizen, in an inebriated condition in the business class of the Air India flight from New York to Delhi on November 26 last year.
Delhi Police had registered an FIR against him on January 4 on a complaint given by the woman to Air India.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Airport) Ravi Kumar Singh said, "Accused Shankar Mishra in IGIA case has been arrested from Bengaluru by a Delhi Police team. He has been brought to Delhi and further investigation into the case is in progress."
The accused was staying at his sister's house in Sanjay Nagar, Bengaluru. The city police assisted the Delhi Police team in arresting him, a Bengaluru police official said.
Mishra had switched off his mobile phone on January 3 and his last location was traced to Bengaluru, Delhi Police officials said.
He used to take a taxi to travel in Bengaluru. His travel history was extracted and the route he used to take to reach his office was followed, they said.
Late on Friday night, Mishra's location was traced to Mysuru. By the time the Delhi Police team reached there, he had alighted from the taxi. The taxi driver was questioned, which yielded some leads, they said.
Mishra often stayed at the place from where he was arrested, the police said.
