New Delhi: A driver of the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC), who was on the run for the past 16 years after grievously injuring a man in an accident, was arrested from near a court complex here, police said on Saturday.

Brahm Singh (48), who was declared a proclaimed offender in November 1994, was caught from near Tiz Hazari Courts on March four when he came there to check the status of his case.

Singh, who hails from Baghpur village in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahar district, had hit a pedestrian and caused him grievous injuries in the early 1990s. He was arrested in this case, a senior police official said.

"During trial, Singh did not appear in the court and while serving of summons, it was learnt that he left his rented accommodation in West Jyoti Nagar of Shahdara locality and he was declared proclaimed offender," he said.

Later, police learnt that he was residing in Baghpur and a team was sent there twice but he could not be arrested.

"On March four, we received information that he was present near Tis Hazari Courts and a trap was laid. We caught him there," the official added.
