NEW DELHI, INDIA (APRIL 06, 2015) (ANI) – Delhi police have arrested an Indian national wanted in the U.K. for serial sex offences against women.

The accused, Raminder Singh, against whom Interpol had issued a red corner notice in 2012, was arrested in the capital on Sunday (April 05), after the British High Commission requested the Indian authorities to trace the suspect who had fled from the UK.

He has been arrested and being produced in court,” said Ravindra Yadav, Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime Branch, on Monday (April 06).

Singh had gone to the U.K. for higher studies in Edinburgh in 2009.
