On Monday, Milind Lavate (45), a resident of Kandivali, was apprehended by the anti-extortion cell, who was found in a car with stickers of different government offices. Moreover, Lavate had swindled a Mumbai builder of Rs. 6 crores for a promise of Rs. 600 crore loan.

A trap was laid by the crime branch after it received a tip about Lavate’s whereabouts. The conman is wanted in several states in cases involving cheating.

Sachin Kadam, the investigation officer said, “We laid a trap and intercepted the car in which Lavate was with two bodyguards like he were some VIP. We found many identity cards of Vidhan Sabha and Delhi crime branch among others. We quizzed him, but he failed to reply and so we arrested him.”
