New Delhi: A Spanish national, who was
evading court proceedings in a 2006 accident case in the
capital and declared a proclaimed offender, was arrested from
Gurgaon, the police said on Monday.
Gerardo Moranmte Mondez was apprehended from his
residence, the Residency Apartments in Sector
52, Gurgaon, Virender Chahal, Additional Commissioner of
Police (South-East), said.
Mondez was declared proclaimed offender in June last
year by a local court after he failed to appear before the
court in a motor accident case of 2005, the official said.
The accused, who worked in Spanish Embassy and was

resident of Sarita Vihar, while driving his car rashly in
front of Deshbandhu College.
Dar sustained grievous injuries and was arrested

and also left the job from Spanish Embassy and his Lajpat
Nagar-III residence and and started to live in Gurgaon without
giving his present residential address either to the court or
to the police, Chahal said.
He was also wanted in Motor Accident Claims Tribunal
as his car was not insured on the day of accident. Also his
car was also seized in a case of NDPS Act at Narcotics Branch
which found that it was used for smuggling of drugs, he said.
