Thane, Jul 12 (UNI) A team of the city police which had gone to Balia of Uttar Pradesh to nab a theft accused, instead apprehended a murder convict who had jumped parole and was in hiding in his hometown of that district.
A Crime Branch team had gone to Balia to investigate a case of theft registered under section 379 of the Indian Penal Code with the Narpoli police station.
