Crime branch (unit XII) laid a trap after tracking down Sachin Borde in Nashik by posing as a customer buying bank-seized cars at a discount. Borde used to take an advance payment to pay the bank after showing them a fake letter of the flat.
Borde, from Dahisar, fled a year back along with his wife, after duping people from Andheri to Mira Road in 2017-19. A case was registered by MHB Colony police on May 2 during lockdown after victims failed to contact Borde.
DCP (crime I) Akbar Pathan supervised inspector Mahesh Tawde, assistant inspectors Vikram Kadam and Atul Avhad, sub-inspector Hemant Gite and staff
