PANAJI: Goa police late on Monday night arrested a UK national wanted by the Lancashire police for a kidnapping in Burnley more than six years ago.

The police stumbled upon Ajay Kaushal, 50, while investigating the death of a British tourist in Colva on Sunday. Police sources said Kaushal had been sentenced to 15 years in jail by a UK court, but he fled the country. Ateam of the Colva police led by PI Siddhant Shirodkar arrested Kaushal under section 41 of CrPC after receiving documents from the Lancashire police. Confirming this, SP (South) Allen D’Sa said, “On receiving confirmation from the Lancashire police that Kaushal is a most wanted man in there, we arrested him”. “We are in touch with the Interpol and are verifying his antecedents”, said DIG Ravindra Yadav.
