Noida: Aam Aadmi Party activist Chandra Mohan Sharma, who had allegedly faked his death, was arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police on Thursday evening, latest reports suggest.
Sharma and his lover were detained by the UP police in Bangalore, where he was living after faking his death.
The activist who was found 'burnt to death' in his car in Greater Noida three months ago, was caught alive after reports of him being spotted in Nepal emerged.
After receiving the inputs, the police had sent teams to Karnataka as well as Nepal and its bordering areas to search for the 38-year-old Sharma suspecting that he had staged his death.
A report had quoted Sharma's wife Savita as saying that the activist was allegedly living with a woman. She, too, believed that the AAP member had faked his death.
The police said the burnt body found in the car was of someone else and have now begun looking afresh at the case.
According to Savita, the police tracked down Sharma after putting his mobile on tracker.
