Diphu: In a major breakthrough, an Assam Police team from Karbi Anglong district on Wednesday apprehended a person with a stolen Toyota Fortuner vehicle from Dillai police-check post along Diphu-Manja road.
According to sources, the accused identified as Mohipal Singh, a resident of New Delhi’s Ashok Vihar, was nabbed by cops while he was fleeing to Dimapur via Dillai check-post with the stolen vehicle bearing registration number AS-01-DV-2330.
