His girlfriend Kajal Jha has also been taken into custody by the authorities in Thailand, official sources cited in a PTI report said.

Ravi Nagar has been into scrap trade where he allegedly used criminal influence to win contracts and even engaged in loot of material from industrial sites, according to the police.

Nagar, 42, is also an accused in a gang-rape case lodged at the Noida Sector 39 police station on December 28, 2023, according to officials.
